    The University of Texas - Arlington: Online BSW.

    Northern Arizona University: Online BSW

    Also, you can pursue an an online MSW from The University of North Dakota. One does not need a BSW to gain entrance to this program.

    With that said, it looks like there is a two year wait for admission to this program.

    Social Work Minor, next step, online BSW or MSW ?

    My Bachelors Degree Major was Liberal Studies with a Minor in Social Work. I would like to pursue an online BSW or MSW but don't know the next step. I've looked at a lot of the programs online. It seems that you need your BSW before you can apply for the MSW.
    Anyone out there starting with a SW minor looking to move forward? I welcome any experience or advice. Thank you!

    I don't know about doing your whole Social Work degree online but I do know that when you have to keep up to date by doing your
    social work ceu (continuing education courses) you can do those courses online and skip having to travel to a course to get the training. It's a much faster and an easier way to keep licensed once you have your degree.

    Hi, do you know where to find these courses? I mean online course because some learners they don't have time to go for this goal. Instead, they can take online class with online program. Have you ever heard that?

    Note: since social work is a licensed profession you want to be very sure that an Australian degree (or one from any non-US country) will do what you want it to do.*

    *if you live in the US

    In addition to the excellent advice so far, also keep in mind that in many jurisdictions, the Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) degree from a school accredited by the Council on Social Work Education is the base standard for licensure.

    Some states have Bachelor's-level licensure where one works under the supervision of a LICSW, but not all.
