Program Spotlight: Rutgers Master of Social Work (MSW) at Atlantic Cape Community College

The Rutgers School of Social Work’s Intensive Weekend MSW program prepares you for a career in either public or  private social welfare, and for advanced social work practice such as administrative leadership roles in the state’s social welfare departments and agencies, and at all levels of government, as well as in the voluntary sector. The program is designed to enable individuals employed in social service and other human service related fields to pursue their MSW while continuing to work full time.
