Master of Social Work Degrees & Certificates

The nation’s first 100% online, asynchronous, CSWE-accredited program.

Grad­u­ates of the Uni­ver­si­ty of New Eng­land Mas­ter of Social Work pro­gram learn to under­stand the poten­tial for indi­vid­ual and col­lec­tive human devel­op­ment when peo­ple live with dig­ni­ty and social jus­tice; to iden­ti­fy people’s strengths across diverse pop­u­la­tions and how to build upon them; to under­stand the mul­ti­ple social, cul­tur­al, polit­i­cal, and eco­nom­ic fac­tors influ­enc­ing the design, devel­op­ment, and eval­u­a­tion of social poli­cies and pro­grams; to devel­op the knowl­edge and skills nec­es­sary to car­ry out mul­ti­ple social work inter­ven­tions con­sis­tent with the School’s mis­sion and the profession’s ethics; and to devel­op inter­ven­tion strate­gies that empow­er indi­vid­u­als, fam­i­lies, groups, or com­mu­ni­ties.

Why UNE Online?  Our stu­dents grad­u­ate the pro­gram with the knowl­edge and skills to devel­op inter­ven­tion strate­gies at the micro and macro lev­el that are con­sis­tent with our pro­fes­sion­al ethics.
