Flexible MSW Programs in New York

A graduate-level social work program that works with your schedule.

The standard master’s level program at the Adelphi University School of Social Work leads to an MSW and takes two years of full-time study. However, there are several other options for completing the MSW degree. While many students take courses on a part-time basis, the sequencing of the courses and requirements is universal for all programs.

Our Master of Social Work programs are listed below. For any program, you must complete requirements within four years of matriculation. You also need to fulfill residency requirements by enrolling in 10 or more credits for two successive semesters.
