MSW Certificate Programs

The MSW program offers students the opportunity to earn a Certificate by focusing their education on a particular area of social work. Only one Certificate may be earned within the MSW program. This Certificate will be noted on one's transcript and students will receive an electronic copy or hard copy of the Certificate. There are five Certificate programs:

  • Addiction Counselor Training (ACT); 
  • Aging & Health (A&H); 
  • Promoting Child & Adolescent Well-Being (ChAP);
  • Latina/o/x Initiatives for Service, Training, and Assessment (LISTA);
  • Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC).

To compare eligibility, requirements, and other information for the Certificates, view our comparison chart; for detailed information about a specific Certificate, click on a link below.


The application to the ACT, ChAP and VAWC Certificate programs is currently closed. The application will open in February for Advanced Standing MSW students.

The deadline for applications to the Aging & Health and LISTA Certificate programs has been extended to February 15.  Please visit the Aging & Health and LISTA websites for the application link.
