Long Island University Brooklyn

Department of Social Work

The Doctorate of Social Work (DSW) is a prestigious degree that is a steppingstone to building your career. The DSW is an accelerated 45 credit program designed to be completed in two years, including two summer intensives. Classes are conveniently scheduled on the Brooklyn campus one evening per week. All classes are a hybrid of in person and online instruction. 

LIU's DSW is unique in that students choose from three areas of specialization:

  1. Teaching in the Academy: This track prepares you to become a professor of social work
  2. Advanced Practice Management: This track prepares you to build a successful private practice and to build your own social work business
  3. Organizational Leadership: This track prepares you to move up the career ladder in an organization

LIU's DSW distinguishes itself with a student-centered focus. We recognize that students lead busy lives and have numerous commitments. Our program is designed to fit your schedule and meet your needs while you earn a respected credential that is a career game changer.
