Accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), Binghamton University's Master's of Social Work (MSW) program at Binghamton University trains competent and effective social workers in an empowering, inclusive environment. 


The Binghamton University Department of Social Work aims to prepare social workers for autonomous, knowledge-based, advanced generalist practice within an integrated community of scholars, practitioners and learners.

The Social Work program helps students acquire a broad base of knowledge and skills to address the needs of families, individuals, groups, organizations and communities. The faculty is committed to education that furthers social and economic justice, as well as to developing professional social workers who will become leaders in a complex, multicultural society.

The department offers both full-time and part-time programs, as well as an advanced standing program for qualified students with bachelor's degrees in social work. The part-time program is a blended program, allowing students the opportunity to complete half of their classroom experiences online in a virtual classroom.
