College Consensus Best Online Master's in Social Work 2021

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the field of social work is projected to only expand. The outlook is that there will be something to the tune of a 13 percent increase in positions between 2019 and 2029. Students considering a career in the field of social work will want to obtain a master's degree (MSW) to have the necessary qualifications and experience to lead in this growing field.

Specializations are important and can determine which program is best for students.
