Our Programs

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.
