MSW Distance Options

For students who want to earn their MSW degree at the University of Maine, but cannot regularly commute to our Orono campus, we currently offer an Blended (Online-Hybrid) format for convenience and optimal learning.

Blended (Online-Hybrid) Option

Using state-of-the-art learning management systems, students will engage in most classes without the need to be online at a particular day or time.  These asynchronous classes will be supplemented with some “synchronous” class meetings and in-person meetings.  This means that you and your classmates meet together online in class using a webcam and microphone on your computer, as you would in traditional class meetings. A few real-time courses for learning that requires live interaction with other students will also be taught during the field practicum seminar. To enhance student-faculty interaction, classes will meet live at the University of Maine campus in Orono for two Saturdays per semester.

The field practicum may be completed at qualifying organizations geographically convenient to students.

Blended (Online-Hybrid) MSW students are eligible for financial aid programs if they enroll in at least 6 credits.
