Pick the track that’s right for you

We understand that every student has unique needs and circumstances. That’s why VCU’s online M.S.W. Program format offers a variety of full-time and part-time curriculum tracks over different durations.

The collection of tracks has been designed to allow students to pursue full-time or part-time tracks, with the option to start the program three times a year. See below for breakdown of classes and course loads based on full- or part-time track options, duration and start term.

Regardless of the track you choose, you will be expected to dedicate significant and meaningful time to your M.S.W. studies, including a meaningful number of field placement hours. To get a better understanding of the weekly time commitment that the online M.S.W. Program format requires for different tracks and entry options, see this chart. If you have any additional questions about the curriculum track options or the expected time commitment, please reach out to us at or (804) 207-4973.
