Traditional On-Campus Programs

The traditional, on-campus program is the largest MSW program at the School. Offered on all three campuses (New Brunswick, Camden, and Newark), students choose from a schedule of daytime and evening classes and an incredible array of field placements available throughout New Jersey and neighboring states.

If you are a full-time student, you can complete the program within two years. If you are a part-time student, you can complete the program within four year. If you earned a baccalaureate degree in social work from an undergraduate social work program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, in the United States or Canada, you may apply for Advanced Standing and complete the program in one year following successful completion of any additional courses required to fulfill the professional foundation. A full complement of MSW courses are offered in the evening.

We offer a critical field education component, several certificate programs, and many areas of emphasis.
