Binghamton University Department of Social Work aims to prepare social workers for autonomous, knowledge-based, generalist (BSW) and advanced generalist (MSW) practice within an integrated community of scholars, practitioners and learners.
The department offers a full- and part-time MSW program, as well as an advanced standing program for students with bachelor's degrees in social work from CSWE accredited programs. The part-time track is a blended program, allowing students the opportunity to complete half of their courses online.
We also offer dual degree programs, allowing students to earn their MSW and a second master's degree from Binghamton University in just three years. The MSW dual degree programs are blended with either MPA, Student Affairs Administration and Spanish.
The Department of Social Work also offers a full-time BSW program that had its first cohort admitted in the fall of 2019.
