DSW Members Programs

Simmons University

School of Social Work

The online DSW curriculum is designed by social workers for social workers. Our faculty dedicate themselves to research, teaching, and real-world practice. They know that advanced clinical social workers need a similarly wide range of training to succeed — and they share their extensive knowledge and experience with students.

As an online DSW student, you will gain the leadership, clinical practice, and teaching skills you need to develop your professional identity, hone your areas of expertise, and create positive change in the field.

Prepare to lead organizations built on core social work values.
Learn emerging clinical practice skills to support diverse clients.
Grow your ability to teach in various educational contexts.
Our community explores social work issues and challenges through a social justice lens to pave the way for more inclusive leadership, effective clinical practice, and progressive education. Join us to become part of progress.

Simmons School of Social Work was founded in 1904 to break down barriers in education for aspiring and rising social workers. We have remained on the leading edge of the field into the 21st century, delivering high-quality online social work programs since 2014.
