Become an 
Agent of Change

Accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the Binghamton University Master of Social Work (MSW) program trains competent and effective social workers in an empowering, inclusive environment. Our mission is to prepare social workers for autonomous, knowledge-based, advanced generalist practice within an integrated community of scholars, practitioners and learners.

We help students acquire a broad base of knowledge and skills to address the needs of families, individuals, groups, organizations and communities. Binghamton University 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 of Social Work will continue to accept applications for the full-time and part-time programs for Fall 2015 until the cohorts are full.
