Try University of Tennessee at Knoxville...

They have a good online program!

It's especially good, if you want to work on the clinical side!

It's depends on the state that you're in. NY does not license online SW degrees. Check your state licensing board to determine if it's accepted.

Since Social Work is a field where you need to get experience interacting with people, there are no programs where you can get a degree fully on line. You might consider a weekend program, which is what I did. If you are in the Northeast--Springfield College has an excellent program. It is where I graduated. After you get your degrees, there are a number of continuing educaiton course you can do on line thrug NASW and in this state NY (OASIS) for substance abuse services, as well as many others.

PS Springfield College is located in Springfield Massachusetts. When I went there, they had a 2-3 days weekday prorgram as well as a 2-3 day weekend program, which were both considered Full-time (for financial aid purposes). It is a total of 60 credit hours for a Masters Degree. I believe they also have BSW programs.
