Social Work + School Social Worker Licensure

Our Social Work (MSW) + School Social Worker Licensure program prepares clinical social workers to work in school settings.

Students in class

Students in this program earn their Master of Social Work and upon graduation are eligible to apply for the Massachusetts State License to be a School Social Worker/School Adjustment Counselor.

This certification is required to work as a clinical social worker in many school settings.
