Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Courses on FSW Topics

Open to current students and practitioners, student fees are sometimes reduced. Half- and full-day sessions are offered each semester on varying FSW topics. The “Intro to FSW” course is generally taken first, as many other CPE courses in FSW build off of that content.

The Financial Social Work Certificate Program 

Open to BSW and MSW graduates and other helping professionals, this is a 7-month long, fee-based certificate program for Continuing Education credits. It is designed for social workers and other allied practitioners who were not able to take the 3-credit course during their MSW degree. You can learn more about topics covered, the schedule, and cost by contacting Dr. Christine Callahan at ccallahan@ssw.umaryland.edu or 410-706-7051.
