Pacific Oaks College Adds Online Master of Social Work (MSW)

online Master of Social Work

Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, California has announced a new program for distance learners. Online students can now pursue a Master of Social Work degree leading to California licensure.

Despite its online nature, the 60-credit hour curriculum for the program emphasizes real-world experiences and prepares students to become culturally competent social workers. Students enrolled in the program will take online classes such as:

  • Social Work Practice I: Individuals
  • Social Work Practice II: Families and Groups
  • Social Work Practice III: Organizations and Communities

The program will be flexible, enabling students to take their classes on a part-time or full-time basis. It will also follow an accelerated format, allowing students to earn their degree within just two to three years, depending on courseload.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has predicted that jobs for social workers will increase by 7% between 2022 and 2032. That’s faster than average compared to other occupational fields in the U.S. This new program at Pacific Oaks will help fill these new positions, at least in the state of California.
