Certificate in Clinical Social Work

Open exciting new doors in the field of health care with Monmouth University’s 18-credit graduate certificate in Clinical Social Work. With intensive coursework that provides a foundation in clinical knowledge, our program fulfills the educational requirement for the Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) exam. Earning this certification will allow you to expand your career opportunities to leadership roles within a mental health facility, substance abuse centers, private practices, and more.

This program is open to students who have been licensed as a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) at the master’s level of a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited program. Depending on previous coursework, students may be able to waive some credits of clinical courses.

You will study advanced clinical practice with families, adults, and children, as well as evaluation strategies and methods. You will also take two electives, with course offerings including topics such as trauma, play therapy, maternal mental health, substance abuse, school social work, and more. Students who wish to pursue Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC) licensure may fulfill their academic requirements with elective courses.
