Online Master of Social Work
Student Outcomes

Social work degrees are flexible and transferable to many practice settings, offering you the chance to make a difference for more people in more places. Pursuing your MSW online from Regis opens up specialties that require advanced knowledge beyond what a BSW provides.

Social work is a regulated profession requiring state licensure*. Regis’ online MSW degree can prepare you to sit for your Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) exam from the Association of Social Work Boards.

Some states also offer a Licensed Master Social Worker-Advanced Generalist (LMSW-AG) exam for MSW graduates with hands-on experience. To qualify as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), however, you will need supervised clinical experience and additional exams. LCSW is the highest credential a social worker can achieve.

*Because each state has its own regulations and requirements that are always evolving, it is critical to contact your state’s licensing board for current information on licensure.
