The DSW is a practice-oriented doctoral degree, and the DSW program in clinical social work will prepare licensed social workers for leadership roles in academic and agency settings.

New York University’s Silver School of Social Work is pleased to announce a new doctoral program in clinical social work (DSW) for professional social workers. The DSW is a practice-oriented doctoral degree, and the DSW program in clinical social work will prepare licensed social workers for leadership roles in academic and agency settings. The School will be accepting applications online starting Monday, December 8.

The program builds on NYU Silver’s recognized excellence and long reputation in clinical social work training and will offer state-of-the-art coursework on theory, evidence-based practices, research, and policy, as well as intensive writing workshops. Experienced clinicians will be able to enhance their clinical knowledge as it pertains to advances in theoretical and practice models, clinical research, and policies that directly impact practice.
The three-year, executive-style program allows students to continue working full-time. Students will be able to focus their internships in either teaching or clinical supervision. In lieu of a dissertation, students will write two publishable papers and present work at a professional conference.

Carol Tosone, associate professor and recipient of the NYU Distinguished Teaching Award, will serve as program director. She is editor-in-chief of the Clinical Social Work Journal, a distinguished scholar in the National Academy of Practice in Social Work, and recipient of the Postgraduate Center Memorial Award in recognition of clinical excellence.
