The New York University DSW Program in Clinical Social Work is a practice- oriented doctoral degree designed to prepare students, already professionally licensed, for leadership roles in academic and agency settings. Building on NYU Silver School of Social Work’s reputation for excellence in clinical social work education, the DSW program offers students state-of-the-art theoretical, evidence-based practice, research, and policy coursework, as well as writing workshops and a choice of a teaching or supervisory internship geared toward the enhancement of advanced clinical practice knowledge and skills. Unique aspects of the program include internships in academic teaching or supervision in agency- based settings, as well as intensive writing workshops to assist in the development of publishable papers and preparation for presentation of one’s work at professional conferences. The DSW program structure is executive style: students take 19 courses/workshops for 9 semesters over a 3-year period conveniently scheduled on evenings and weekends to ensure their continued participation in the workforce. In lieu of a dissertation, the portfolio requirement consists of the development of 2 publishable papers (1 sole authored and 1 as primary author) under the direction of an advisor and committee, as well as presentation of one’s work at a professional conference.
