Overview

You would also be primed for graduate programs in social work, including our own Master’s in Social Work, which typically offers advanced standing to students with an undergraduate degree in social work. In addition to classroom work, you can participate in carefully crafted social work internships, which often lead to full-time positions after graduation. Or maybe you’ll wind up pursuing law school, working in public administration or launching a career in international affairs. Whichever path you choose, this program is excellent preparation.

The programme

The Social work program offered by Seton Hall University combines a liberal arts base with a foundation in social work’s values and ethics. You’ll learn about social justice, poverty and oppression, and how to lead in the human and social services — and we’re always looking to enhance our curriculum through student feedback. After learning theory and research methodology, you’ll put your knowledge into practice through fieldwork. Our internships are guided learning experiences and include assignments in child welfare agencies, community action programs, criminal justice and corrections programs, healthcare facilities and many other settings.
