Wurzweiler School of Social Work’s curriculum prepares you for a meaningful career through hands-on experience and coursework. Face-to-face and hybrid summer programs allow you to have the best of both worlds. Students attend classes in New York City for three summers and return to their home communities for fieldwork during the academic year. This unique program features clinical and macro concentrations, embedded specializations, direct field supervision, small class sizes, and dedicated, nurturing faculty.

*Due to COVID-19, Summer Block 1 & Summer Block 2 coursework will be done online through a virtual classroom for the first summer semester.

"The summer block program is set up in a really streamlined, effective way to become the best social worker we can be." - Rachel Max, MSW Summer Student

 

Two Summer Sessions

Flexibility:  Begin your studies in either June or July of the summer. Come back to your home location for the fall and spring semesters of the program to complete your fieldwork and online courses. Choose between a regular or advanced standing format.

Individualized: You will be assigned a faculty advisor to guide you through academic studies, mentor your career growth, oversee and assess your field experience, and help build your professional confidence.

Personal Attention: Classes are intimate and encourage close interaction with faculty, guest lecturers and peers. An on site writing center for Wurzweiler students is available at no additional cost.

Client Work: Building skills for repairing the world one person at a time and supporting caring families, groups, and communities where everyone thrives is central to the field work experience.

Ethics: Founded on a profound respect for individual beliefs and Jewish social philosophy, Wurzweiler fosters tolerance and trains you to support the spiritual and emotional needs of clients.

World-Renowned Educational Experience: Students and faculty come from around the globe and all walks of life, enriching your learning experience. Field placements are available across the US, in Canada, Israel and other countries.
