Enhancing Leadership skills in:
Education | Clinical Supervision | Practice Theories

The DSW program in clinical social work prepares licensed social workers for leadership roles in academic and agency settings. Building on the NYU Silver School of Social Work’s recognized excellence and history in clinical training, the DSW program will enhance students’ clinical knowledge as it pertains to advances in theoretical and practice models, clinical research, and policies that directly impact practice.

This executive-style program structure allows students to continue working full-time. Students will take 19 courses or workshops for eight semesters over a 3-year period conveniently scheduled on alternate Fridays, except for a compressed summer session and elective courses taken in other NYU schools. Select classes may contain an online component. In lieu of a dissertation, the graduation portfolio requirement consists of writing two publishable papers under the direction of an adviser and committee, as well as presentation of your work at a professional conference.

The DSW program is fortunate to have an outstanding core faculty renowned for their clinical, theoretical, policy, and research expertise.
