Department of Graduate Social Work
The Master of Social Work program provides students with an engaging, inclusive, supportive, and collaborative learning environment that prepares them for the profession of social work. Our students come to us from diverse local, regional, national and international backgrounds with an eagerness to learn. While in the program, students will find helpful faculty and staff willing to openly discuss topics, answer questions, and provide quality insight that will promote their academic and professional success.
Our program provides quality instruction that will prepare students for evidence-based clinical practice. The program aligns with Kean University’s goal of respecting differences and celebrating diversity. The faculty and staff are dedicated and committed to ensuring that our students become critical thinkers prepared to engage in direct clinical practices that will foster social, economic, and environmental justice for a diverse global society.
The program’s expectation is for each student to obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to become an effective and competent professional social worker.
