MSWCERTIFICATE PROGRAMS & SPECIALIZATIONS
Add a focus to your social work degree
MSW students have the option to incorporate certificate programs or specializations into their standard course of study. Specializations and certificates are entirely optional but offer a focused academic experience for those students who want to delve deeply into a particular area of practice.
Occasionally, students are able to complete more than one certification or specialization, but this requires very specific course scheduling. A number of factors contribute to the feasibility of completing additional certifications or specializations, including course availability, ability to cross-count courses between certifications and specializations, nature of field placement, etc. Students who are interested in more than one certification or specialization should review the requirements for each and discuss course scheduling with the certification or specialization director and their academic advisor.
It is expected that all requirements for the certification or specialization be met while the student is completing the MSW degree. Any exceptions must be approved in advance by the certification or specialization director.
