Online MSW While Living Abroad

Recommended Posts

Dear community,

 

I am a US citizen currently living in Japan.  I would like to start an online MSW program while I am living here, but don't know if any program exists for students living abroad. 

 

Does anyone have any information? 

 

Thank you all so much for your help!

When I broached this subject with USC years ago, I was told that the answer was no because it would be diffifcult to ensure a field placement. I countered and asked if I could have a field placement on a military base and they said it may be possible.

I just went over to the website and the answer remains the same. Provisions may only be made for active duty military (providing a placement is available).

I would venture to say that other programs would have similar responses. Let's hope others chime in.

So helpful! Thank you.  It's hard just to know where to start sometimes, but this is great information.  Options are certainly limited, but I'm not ready to give up the possibility yet :)  Thanks again!
