Our Lady of the Lake University’s Worden School of Social Service, one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious schools of social work, is now offering its acclaimed Master of Social Work (MSW) degree program entirely online, giving working adults the opportunity to work toward this career-building and service-oriented credential no matter where they reside.
The online MSW from Our Lady of the Lake University is one of only three social work master’s degree programs in the United States that emphasizes service to Hispanic children and families, the fastest-growing demographic community in the nation. In addition, the Worden School was proud to receive the 2009 Presidential Award for Excellence from the Council on Social Work Education, an annual honor reserved for just one of the nearly 500 social work degree programs in America.
Focusing on social work across the life span, the online MSW from Our Lady of the Lake University prepares students for social service leadership and advanced direct practice in a variety of settings and for a variety of clients, from young children to elderly adults (already the single largest group of social service recipients, and growing fast). The versatility of the online Master of Social Work at OLLU is just one reason why 100% of recent MSW students were employed and working in the field upon graduation.
