Boise State's completely online master's in social work program that opened in January already has attracted 25 students.
The new online program allows students to enroll and begin classes at three times during the year. The program is self-paced, meaning that students can finish as quickly or slowly as they like.
“Our online program is going to offer more flexibility and accessibility to students around the state than our four face-to-face programs,"
Randy Magen, director of the School of Social Work, said.
The need for online social work programs has been keenly felt in Idaho, as students who reside in smaller, outlying communities have struggled to access the institutions which offer such studies. Additionally, Idaho is in desperate need of social workers, according to Tim Dunnagan, who serves as the dean for the College of Health Sciences.
"We’ve had satellite campuses in the past but this really opens up our program to the entire state,” Dunnagan said.
