Social Work (Minor)

Program Description

The Social Work minor at NYU Silver fosters an in-depth understanding of many of the challenges that society faces today, both domestically and internationally, and teaches students about the myriad actions they can take to help address them.

In addition to providing an overview of social work as a profession through the course Society and Social Welfare, this program exposes students to the goals of social work and examines the different modes social work can inhabit. Elective courses include Social Justice and Peacemaking, Society and Mental Health, and Social Deviance and Taboo.
