Program Details

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 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. 

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 and healthcare. With fieldwork and theoretical components, this program is open to both full- and part-time students.
