UNH offering exclusive online master’s degree in social work
It is the second online master’s degree offered at UNH, which launched an online master in business administration degree in 2012.
In addition, students are required to complete two field internships at a program or agency in their communities, identified with assistance from the department of social work’s field office.
A feature of UNH’s online MSW program will be an option for students to earn a graduate certificate in intellectual and developmental disabilities through a partnership with the UNH Institute on Disability. Other specialty certificates will be offered in the future.
“With this online MSW, we can prepare students to make the world a better place, whether or not their schedules or lifestyles allow them to come to campus,” Patrick Shannon, associate professor of social work and coordinator of the online MSW program, said. “Like our campus-based programs in Durham and Manchester, the online MSW will educate social work professionals to work effectively with diverse individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities to optimize human potential for productive participation in society.”
