Online MSW Programs in Florida (FL)

There are three universities with campuses in Florida that offer online Master of Social Work (MSW) programs: Florida State University (FSU), Saint Leo University and the University of Central Florida. FSU offers a part-time program with both traditional and advanced standing tracks. Currently, FSU does not accept students from all counties in Florida. For example, students who live within a county that already offers a MSW program or who live within 100 miles of Leon County are not eligible for the online program. (Note: students who live in Jacksonville are eligible for the program). For a complete least of eligible counties, click here.

Sponsored MSW Programs


Saint Leo University offers both a traditional track and an advanced standing track. The traditional program can be completed either full-time or part-time while the advanced standing track can only be completed full-time. In addition, Saint Leo University’s program requires students to visit the campus for one weekend during the summer. (On OnlineMSWPrograms.com, we classify any MSW program that requires two or fewer visits to the campus per year as an online program.)

The University of Central Florida only offers a traditional track that can be completed part-time. For all three universities, the online MSW programs have a clinical social work focus / concentration.

Please note: All online MSW programs require students to complete field education at a local health services agency.

In addition to FSU, Saint Leo University and UCF, there are 26 universities that offer online MSW programs that accept students from Florida. The majority of these schools offer fully online programs that do not require students to visit the campus while earning their degree. Only 6 of the 26 schools require students to make a limited number of visits to the campus. For students who want the flexibility of an online program, but who would still like to meet professors and classmates in person, these programs are a great option.

Several of the 26 out-of-state institutions have the same tuition rate for in-state and out-of-state students. Therefore, students should research as many programs as possible as they narrow down their list of prospective schools.
