About the School of Social Work
At Adelphi, we’ve been leading the field for more than 70 years.
At the Adelphi University School of Social Work, we train practitioners to improve the lives of individuals, families, groups, and communities. We’re consistently ranked as one of the top programs in the nation—a strong advocate for social justice and a driving force for ethical social work practice.
Our classes are small and supportive, whether they’re taught in a traditional classroom setting or online. The curriculum is challenging, but the schedule is not—we teach at multiple locations in convenient formats. Our faculty members are engaged social work scholars with extensive teaching experience. They’re also recognized leaders in their respective fields. Learn more about our degree, certificate, and continuing education programs.
