Become an Agent of Change

Social work is about people. Social workers relieve human suffering; alleviate social and economic injustice; and ensure their clients' social, economic and psychological needs are met. Social work is about being an agent of change.

You have the desire to help others, to make a difference and to effect changes that have an impact on the world. Now, you need the knowledge and skills to provide that help. Binghamton University is the place to pursue your master's degree in social work (MSW). 

Accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the Binghamton University MSW program trains competent and effective social workers in an empowering, inclusive environment. Our mission is to prepare social workers for autonomous, knowledge-based, advanced generalist practice within an integrated community of scholars, practitioners and learners.

We help students acquire a broad base of knowledge and skills to address the needs of individuals, groups, families, organizations and communities. Binghamton University is committed to education that furthers social and economic justice, as well as to developing professional social workers who will become leaders in a complex, multicultural and increasingly global society.

We offer a full-time program and a part-time program, as well as an advanced standing program for students who have already earned their bachelor's degrees in social work (BSWs). We also partner with the Department of Public Administration to offer a Master of Public Administration-Master of Social Work (MPA-MSW) dual-degree program.
