Program Offerings

On June 12, 2017, the Council on Social Work Education granted candidacy to the social work program. As a result, graduates can be credentialed as Certified Social Workers by the State of New Jersey. This certification, which does not require passing a licensing exam, distinguishes BSW graduates applying for entry-level jobs in social welfare agencies. Equally beneficial is that graduates can generally complete their Master's Degree in Social Work in one year rather than the standard two years.

The Bachelor's in Social Work (BSW) prepares students to work with individuals. families, groups, organizations, and communities to promote well-being and advocate for social justice.​

Students pursuing a B.A. in Sociology have the option of taking three social work courses for a Concentration in Social Work.
