Non-Matriculated Program

This is an exploratory option for people interested in the field of social work but who have not been admitted to the MSW degree program. One or two courses a semester may be taken without making a commitment to a degree program (maximum of 12 credits). Students later admitted to the master's program may receive credit for as many as four courses (12 credits), from the following:

  • Social Welfare Programs and Policies I
  • Diversity, Racism, Oppression, and Privilege
  • Human Behavior in the Social Environment I
  • Human Behavior in the Social Environment II

Non-matriculated students must earn a grade of "B" or better to have the credits transfer to the MSW degree. Additionally, non-matriculated students cannot enroll in electives, Practice, or Field Instruction courses.

Students enrolled in other schools in the University are invited to register for courses given in the School of Social Work for which they have the appropriate educational background. Permission to register for graduate social work courses must be obtained from the Office of Enrollment Services, 1 Washington Square North, (212) 998-5960.
