The Columbia School of Social Work  prepares students for entry into advanced social work practice. The curriculum emphasizes promoting social and economic justice, particularly for populations-at risk; practicing with diverse populations; and evaluating practice outcomes.

The completion of this degree is earnedby completing a progressive sequence of courses designed in accordance with the standards of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the School’s accrediting body. All students are required by the CSWE to take courses in human behavior and the social environment, social welfare policy and services, research, social work practice, and practicum learning. For a morecomplete description of courses, see the Course Offerings section in this Handbook.
