Online-MSW

Online campus students can:

  • Attend events in the social work building.
  • Conduct or participate in student meetings.
  • Write for or edit the Columbia Social Work Assessment .
  • Win student prizes.

Our online campus students are always welcome on our residential campus. Although we don't ask them to visit, many come for orientation and / or graduation or just to say hello. While here, they attend events, do campus tours, collect Columbia University student IDs and souvenirs, and explore the city.

The hybrid option

As technology becomes more integrated into classroom learning, many of our on-campus students choose to take occasional online classes while some of our online students move to NYC campus for their senior year.

In the meantime, we are constantly trying out new ways to bring the two campuses closer together. Fortunately, CSSW has the benefit of an established online campus and significant in-house expertise. Many of our faculty members teach online and in-person courses and participate in robust training programs that emphasize best practices in interactive and effective teaching approaches.
