Info for Prospective Students
Rutgers School of Social Work provides an extraordinary combination of nationally recognized faculty and outstanding field education opportunities. 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.
We believe that students who are qualified for and passionate about a career in social work should have the ability to pursue one. That is why we provide our students with as much flexibility as possible by offering affordable BA, MSW, DSW, Ph.D. and continuing education programs at each of Rutgers' three campuses (Newark, New Brunswick and Camden). In addition to a full-time degree program, we offer evening and weekend options. Our programs aim to inspire and motivate students to pursue leadership roles in a variety of settings.
