Rutgers School of Social Work prepares passionate, committed students to become global leaders in the field. As one of the nation’s largest and most highly regarded schools of social work, we offer students nationally recognized faculty, rigorous academics, and unbeatable real-world experience.

Our programs prepare graduates to serve society in clinical, academic, government, non-profit, and corporate settings throughout the world.

We offer flexible and affordable programs, including a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree with a social work major, MSW, DSW, Ph.D. and continuing education programs at each of Rutgers’ three campuses (New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden). Classes for our Intensive Weekend MSW program are held in Bordentown, Jersey City, Mays Landing, and Parsippany. We also offer our MSW degree in a variety of online formats. Our students study abroad in Romania, Israel, China, and Mexico.

Our faculty members are a dynamic community of leaders — tenured professors advancing the field of social work through original, published research, and professors of teaching and professional practice and part-time lecturers actively working in local communities and bringing those experiences into the classroom. Our dedicated staff members work on cutting edge research, training, student support, continuing education, alumni support, and many other invaluable areas.

Founded in 1766 and located in the heart of the New Jersey-New York-Pennsylvania region, Rutgers University has always offered students a top-notch, affordable education. As a part of Rutgers since 1954, the School of Social Work carries on that tradition, turning passionate, committed students into leaders who serve society in policy, academic, clinical, and corporate settings.
