Texas State online master’s program ranked among top 5 nationally
The Master of Social Work online program at Texas State University-San Marcos recently was recognized as one of the best in the nation. According to The Best Colleges, Texas State’s MSW online program ranks fifth in the country.
“Due to the vast quality disparity that exists in the online education arena, we’re committed to highlighting online programs that display the highest standards of quality and credibility,” says Jeremy Alder, a representative of the awarding agency. He adds that the Texas State program has improved the stature of online education by “providing students with a truly excellent distance learning opportunity.”
Texas State’s MSW degree program caters to “college-degreed people who really want to improve society,” according the program description. Texas State offers the MSW degree in both a traditional on-campus format and an online format. Both programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.
Traditional students attend classes at the San Marcos campus, combined with field work, to complete the degree. Online students may enroll and pursue the MSW degree from anywhere in the world where Internet access is available.
According to the Texas State School of Social Work, the online MSW program “is an excellent choice for students who cannot easily travel to a university campus.”
