Advance Your Career with a Rutgers Certificate Program

Are you looking to develop expertise in a specific area? 

Perhaps it’s time to deepen your skills with a specific population such as older adults or children? The Rutgers University School of Social Work offers several certificate programs designed to give you the necessary skills and knowledge in key areas of practice. Learn from dynamic instructors who are chosen for their expertise and real world experience. 

Our certificate programs range from 8 to 14 workshops or webibars in duration – with each event covering an essential area of knowledge.

A certificate can be earned in the course of one year or over the course of several - you decide.
