Post-Master's Certificate Programs


Current research and evidence-based practice inform all of our post-master's certificate programs. Our programs give professionals the knowledge to advance their treatment strategies and improve their approaches and skills when dealing with complicated cases. An NYU Silver faculty member, who is actively involved in the most recent and relevant social work research, directs each certificate program. Certificate programs range from 40-80 hours in duration and typically meet in the evening. They require comprehensive journal and text reading, engagement in discussion, and debate about the issues and application. Clinical presentations are integral to learning. All programs are NASW CEU accredited.
