Current MSW Students
Patiala, Panjab, India | Two Year Program
Undergraduate Institution: Panjab University
I am an international student in the second year of the MSW program. Silver School of Social Work has offered me a multidimensional classroom and field learning experience, along with opportunities for leadership and community involvement, which have been conducive to my growth as an individual, a student, a professional and as a member of the social work community. My first-year placement was at Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, where I learned to apply motivational interviewing, CBT techniques, and solution focused interventions in my clinical work with individuals struggling with substance abuse and emotional regulation issues. I am currently interning with Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services (CASES), an agency which serves individuals involved in the criminal justice system. It is proving to be an expansive learning experience as I am placed at the intersection of the justice system, mental health, education, and employment.
Ridgewood, NJ | Two Year Program
Undergraduate Institution: Northwestern University
I am a theatre major and English minor looking to effect change in a meaningful way. I am interested in mental health, social justice, and advocacy work. I appreciate Silver's welcoming community, useful resources, and vibrant student life. While school is a lot to balance with other goals and commitments, it is a challenging, eye-opening experience. You truly get what you put in. I find Silver Peer Support to be an important student group on campus, and I am excited to connect with students with different backgrounds, interests, and specialities. Email Justin
Queens, NY | Extended OYR Program
Undergraduate Institution: Adelphi University
I live and breathe Social Work! NYU has given me the front seat to micro, mezzo, and macro work in the classroom, in the institutional structure, and in field. The professors I have had are knowledgeable, supportive, understanding, patient, and encourage learning both in and out of the classroom. They brought real life to every social work concept, theory, and framework. My experience was more than what I expected and I am truly grateful I applied to NYU! Email Casey
