How Online Degrees Work
With the MSW online program, you can earn your master’s degree from the University of North Dakota without interrupting your career.* Keep in mind, to complete the program in 2 years, you are required to complete 6 credits per semester.
"Live" Online Classes
You will receive the convenience of distance learning with the personal contact and connection of “live” instruction through Web-based, online courses.
As an online student in “live” Web classes , you will:
- participate in 2 to 3 class sessions per week that are conducted “live” over the Internet. Typically, online classes are held at set times convenient for most students, such as the evenings and/or weekends.
- interact with your instructors and other students using Web-conferencing technology.
- see your instructors’ materials as though you were sitting in a classroom on the UND campus.
In this manner, the class lectures, discussion, and collaboration are conducted in a very similar fashion to traditional on-campus classes.
Plus, if you miss a class, you may review recorded course content through the Internet at any time.
Local Field Placements
You will also participate in local field placements (as available) to better serve your own community.
NOTE: Background checks are required prior to entry into field placements.
*Brief On-Campus Visit: Intensive Lab
During the first year of your program, you will spend 5 to 6 days on the UND campus in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The on-campus intensive lab session is tentatively scheduled for early November.
As the only on-campus component of the program, the intensive lab session integrates, extends, and applies the knowledge you learned in previous online courses and readings.
