Master of Social Work
Accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), students in Seton Hall’s master's degree in social work prepares students to work with individuals, families or groups in a variety of advanced-practice settings — including behavioral health, substance abuse, healthcare and forensic practice.
Ranked as a Best School for Social Work by U.S. News & World Report, the program offers two tracks, for those with and without an accredited B.S.W.
• For students without a bachelor's degree in social work, the program can be completed in two years as a full-time student or up to four years part-time. The first year consists of either on-campus or online (synchronous) coursework.
• Students with a degree in social work go straight into the second year of the program — the Advanced Standing year — which consists of online courses and on-site fieldwork in the community.
Seton Hall also offers the only graduate forensic social work program in the state of New Jersey, as well as a concentration in behavioral health.
As a student in the program, you’ll emerge with a keen understanding of the complex factors that shape today’s social issues and the confidence to create a lasting difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities.
