MSW Degree Pathways
The Master of Social Work program educates professionals for the pursuit of social justice with an emphasis on direct social work practice that aims to improve bio-psycho-social functioning through helping relationships.
NYU Silver offers eight ways to pursue your MSW degree, allowing for flexibility and a range of educational options, plus an exploratory option for those who wish to consider social work without being admitted to a degree program.
Through our impressive range of electives and field placements, it is possible for you to concentrate your graduate education on specific aspects of social work.
Students have a total of five years from the point of matriculation to complete the MSW requirements. Students have the final responsibility for ensuring that all degree requirements are met and cannot enroll in additional courses after they complete the required credits for their program pathway.
Consultation with the student’s academic advisor upon matriculation into the program is highly recommended.
