One of the distinctive features of the MSW@USC is the high-quality course content provided through engaging videos that brings to life social work theory. Our professionally produced case studies can help you visually experience a “client’s” full range of emotions, for instance, making learning more tangible and accessible. Or, watching someone model practice skills may be easier to understand with a visual demonstration. Supplementing materials presented in a textbook and lectures with video can truly enhance discussion in the live online classroom by offering real-world examples, illustrating key concepts and inspiring students to revisit ideas outside of class.
