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. There are five Certificate programs:

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

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

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.

Advanced Standing students beginning the Traditional MSW program this spring may apply to a Certificate program between February 10 and April 15 via this link: https://rutgers.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9LeTsRB5PU6enuS.  Decisions will be made by April 25.
