Academic Programs at the University of Maryland School of Social Work
Welcome to one of the top social work programs in the country for those interested in studying clinical social work, human services management, and community organization. Our exciting 60-credit master’s degree is divided between 24 foundation credits and 36 advanced credits, where students can choose from a rich curriculum of advanced courses and become the leaders of tomorrow. We will educate you to face the challenges of the future—whether it is helping adults and children struggling with emotional and adjustment issues, working side-by-side with community residents to improve their neighborhoods or guiding
human service agencies to better serve the needs of their clients.
In your advanced year, you have the choice between the clinical concentration and the Management and Community Organization concentration (MACO). It is also possible to combine the two in a course of study that allows for a primary and secondary concentration. In addition, you will choose a specialization or field of practice that will focus your work in a particular area of study within the concentration.
The PhD program offered by the School of Social Work is designed for professionals who already hold a master’s degree in social work. The program is committed to educating social workers who, upon completion of their studies, will have the advanced intellectual, analytic, research, statistical, computer, and theoretical knowledge and skills to provide leadership, scholarship, teaching, and research that will advance social work practice, theory, policy, and research.
