Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2021

Arizona State University is an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. As a queer women, It was very important for me to find a school that practiced inclusiveness and diversity. I instantly felt welcome as a queer Latin women. ASU convenient online degree has made it possible for me to complete my education goals while caring for my elderly parents.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I started my MSW journey in a traditional evening class setting, however after I received a fulltime job offer, this was no longer an option. After taking a semester off and doing research on graduate programs I applied to ASUs online MSW program. I think this was one of my best academic choices I have ever made. ASUs online MSW program has allowed me to obtain a high-quality education while working in my field full time. Each week students are required to complete readings and assignments but are able to complete them on their own time. That means if you are an early bird, you can wake up at dawn and complete them. If you are a night owl, stay up all night and chip away at your readings! I have made quality connections with classmates, instructors, and feel prepared to be a master level social worker. During my time in this program I learned that my husband was getting new military orders and that we would be moving before I was able to complete my degree. ASU was willing to work with me and make my education possible despite making a cross country move. This would not have been an option in my previous MSW program, and I am so thankful for the support ASU provided me. I would recommend ASUs online program to anybody who is looking for a high-quality education that allows flexibility. It is perfect for those who work, parents, military spouses, or those who just need a little bit more flexibility!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

I transferred to Arizona State after a family emergency left me relocating from Florida to North Carolina, where my former MSW program would not accept my NC residency for the program. ASU's MSW was willing to consider accepting more graduate transfer credits than most (30 hours) and that highly influenced my decision. The program academics have been thorough and rigorous so far, however they ended up only accepting 21 of my 34 transfer credits which really set me back. Also, though they have a large online contingent, they did not offer any online classes during the summer which would help me advance my degree, ultimately requiring me to sit out a semester and double up during the Fall and Spring. That was a bit of a let down as well. In the end, however, ASU helped me keep my goal of obtaining an MSW alive despite personal obstacles and for that I am grateful.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2020

This is my first year as a graduate student and ASU has been extremely instrumental and forth coming with all the tools I need to successfully meet my projected career goal and obtain my Masters degree. In addition more than 77,000 ASU students earned their masters, doctorates and professional law degrees in the last 10 years at ASU.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2021

ASU is a school I have been a part of since I was an undergraduate student. Continuing to do my masters program, I chose to stay with ASU because of the top ranking it has for graduate programs and the school of social work. I am very happy with my decision, and would advise anyone to build their own tenure as a student with ASU, because there are many opportunities and research to be established with if you do!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2020

Enrolling in Arizona State University's online program for my Masters in Social Work has allowed me to continue my education while remaining in the workforce full-time and also being a single parent. The classes are 100% online with the exception of field placement which means I have the flexibility to fit my schoolwork into my already busy schedule. My interactions with peers and instructors through Blackboard has been positive and enriching. I look forward to finishing my degree with ASU and entering the field of clinical social work with a solid professional education as my foundation.

The ASU Online Social work program is awesome. It lets you work at your own pace but still has challenging assignments to get your prepared for real work. You also get field placements so you can receive hands on work.The Master of Social Work (MSW) online program at Arizona State University will prepare you to work with individuals, families, communities, and in the world at large to promote social justice and find practical solutions to social problems and pressing issues facing the most vulnerable in our society.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

I originally chose the online MSW program at Arizona State because I needed an online program, and wanted to ensure my degree was from a legitimate university. Additionally, I was impressed by the fees in comparison to other universities that I located with online programs. Unfortunately, immediately after starting classes I found out that the per unit costs and other tuition fees were increasing significantly, and I now question if I would have still chosen ASU if I had been made aware of the new cost. So far I have enjoyed my classes, and the coursework is manageable.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I've worked in higher education so I feel like I am more aware of the 'inner workings' of schools than most people. I also attended a private for-profit college as well as ASU. The biggest difference I found when attending at ASU, resulted in me feeling more motivated, educated and applicable to my new found career. I felt the teachers were very detailed, had good boundaries and were able to address situations in a timely manner.
