The Seton Hall University master's degree in Social Work is a unique opportunity. For students without a bachelor's degree in social work, the program is two years long, with the first year consisting of on-campus coursework. 


Students with a degree in Social Work at Seton Hall University  go straight into the second year of the program — the Advanced Standing year — which consists of online courses and on-site fieldwork in the community. 

Key Features

  • We also offer our students a number of opportunities to see their classroom lessons in action, such as participating in Social Work Day at the United Nations. And we offer the only graduate forensic social work program in the state of New Jersey.
  • Our students finish this program ready to make a difference. They are prepared to work with individuals, families or groups in a variety of advanced-practice settings — including behavioral health, substance abuse, healthcare and forensic practice. With fieldwork and theoretical components, this program is open to both full- and part-time students.
