DENVER, Feb. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) welcomes 75 students, spanning 27 states, to MSW@Denver, an online Master of Social Work program from its top-ranked graduate school of social work. GSSW partnered with 2U, Inc., a global leader in digital education to power MSW@Denver.
"The Graduate School of Social Work's partnership with 2U is mission-centered," said Amanda Moore McBride, Morris Endowed Dean of the Graduate School of Social Work. "We are committed to education access and the opportunities that a quality education provides - not just for the students, but for the communities where those students live. Our MSW@Denver students are from rural and urban areas across the United States, many are working full- or part-time, with families, and have other commitments to their communities. Without this partnership, we would not be able to reach these incredible students so that they can get the knowledge and skills needed to make a positive and lasting impact in their communities."
The cohort - which began in January - meets weekly in live collaborative classes, engages with interactive coursework developed by GSSW faculty and completes hands-on internships at field sites in their communities.
"The University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work staff personally connected with me and took the time to get to know me. I forgot I was in an online program because the professors saw me as an individual and I wasn't just another name on a roster. The environment has already allowed me to make connections with my classmates that I will carry for my career. With my masters in social work from DU, I plan to work in the mental health arena, specifically in crisis intervention," said MSW@Denver student Anthony Ash.
The next application deadline for MSW@Denver is April 20, 2018, with applications accepted on a rolling basis. For more information, please visit onlinemsw.du.edu or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
MSW@Denver is delivered in partnership with 2U, Inc. which also works with the University of Denver Daniels College of Business to deliver MBA@Denver and recently announced a new partnership with the University of Denver Morgridge College of Education to deliver Morgridge College of Education Online.
