Educated. Skilled. Humane. You want to be trained by the best.

For more than 60 years, the Adelphi University School of Social Work has been at the forefront of preparing social workers through its B.S.W., M.S.W. and Ph.D. programs. We offer a wide range of workshops and certificate programs, and our faculty are known for their research areas and extensive publications, both nationally and internationally. We are affiliated with more than 1,000 human service agencies throughout the New York metropolitan area, including the highly regarded Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program and the Center for Nonprofit Leadership.

Our M.S.W. program provides the knowledge, skills, values and ethics essential to all forms and levels of generalist social work practice. Our doctoral program teaches you to conceptualize, develop, evaluate and disseminate knowledge and strategies—essentially, to lead the development of knowledge for all levels of social work practice.

The School of Social Work is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (C.S.W.E.) at both the bachelor’s and master’s levels.
