Master of Social Work Program

Department of Social Work


In an effort to make our programming more accessible to the people of the region we share, the Department of Social Work is happy to announce our part-time MSW program is now being offered in Sevierville via interactive video. Classes will be held at either the Sevierville Center, via interactive video, and online.

This effort to provide easily accessible instruction is combined with a select menu of online courses and every effort to provide field education (internship) opportunities in the immediate locales where students live or work. It is an expression of the commitment of the Department of Social Work at East Tennessee State University to maintain quality through interaction with all students, while also recognizing that some curricular content lends itself quite appropriately to electronic media and the conveniences offered to students through asynchronous learning environments.

Off-site classes are typically taught by the same full- and part-time faculty who teach courses on the main ETSU campus in Johnson City, TN, with pedagogies and intended learning outcomes identical to program counterparts there. If you're committed to a career as a professional social worker and the education/training that this requires, this accessible location and format will provide you with the learning environment and flexibility to meet your educational goals.
