An online course is a class that is taught online and can be completed in a fairly short amount of time, typically a year or less. Many students pursue online courses in order to gain a greater scope of experience that may help them qualify for career advancement or better professional opportunities.

What is an online course in social work? This academic program provides students with the education and experience needed to support members of their community who may be struggling with addiction, family issues, elder care, discrimination, abuse, or other social problems. Program participants learn how to help struggling individuals, create community programs to address specific problems, and help people in need find resources. An online course in social work allows students to access class materials such as recorded lectures, homework, assigned readings, and collaborative projects remotely and complete it at their own pace. 

Completing an online course in social work may help students improve their reading, writing, communication, and interpersonal skills. These skills may translate into improved job prospects and better career performance once students enter the workplace.

Taking part in an online course can cost differently for each student, depending on the school and the length of the program. Students are encouraged to research their chosen course to confirm that it aligns with their personal and professional goals.

Many individuals who participate in an online course go on to have careers in health and human services, working as social workers, substance abuse counselors, and child welfare workers in schools, medical facilities, juvenile detention centers, prisons, nursing homes, and local community centers. In order to work as a social worker in some of these settings, students may need to further their education and earn a four-year degree from a college or university.

A benefit of taking an online course is that students are able to access their schooling remotely, regardless of where they live.
