The Seton Hall University master’s degree in Social Work (M.S.W) 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 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. 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.

The programme

Our students finish the Social Work program offered by The Seton Hall University 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 and healthcare. With fieldwork and theoretical components, this program is open to both full- and part-time students.

Through a carefully structured curriculum of foundational and advanced courses, students in this program reach their maximum potential. Learning takes place both in and out of the classroom, with theoretical coursework and two field placements. For full-time students, class work is spread over two years. Part-time students may take up to four years. Our advanced standing option allows students with undergraduate degrees from accredited social work programs completed in the past five years to go directly into the second year of the program. No credit will be given for work or life experience.
