The online Master of Social Work (MSW) program has two types of admissions designed to fit your educational background.
Traditional Program Admissions
If you earned a bachelor’s degree in a field other than social work, you may be eligible for our traditional MSW program.
The online MSW program has the same admissions requirements as USC’s on-campus MSW program. A dedicated admissions counselor will guide you through each step of applying to the MSW@USC. Visit our application requirements page for the full list.
