Post msw certificate programs
Post-baccalaureate program for counseling and psychology
MSW students have the option of adding certificate programs or specializations to their regular studies. Specializations and degrees are entirely optional, but they provide a focused academic experience for students who want to learn more about a specific field of practice.
Students may be able to complete more than one specialization on rare occasions, but this necessitates very specific course scheduling. Course availability, the ability to cross-count courses between specializations, the nature of field placement, and other factors all contribute to the feasibility of completing additional specializations. Students interested in more than one specialization should review the criteria for each specialization and consult with their academic advisor about course scheduling.

Changes in the practice environment have reduced supervisor support while increasing the challenges they face. Furthermore, as a result of managed care and budget cuts, many supervisory positions have been abolished, as has training for those supervisors who remain. At the same time, many licensing boards across the country require social workers who provide clinical services to be supervised on a weekly basis.
Every setting in which social workers work exposes them to circumstances of life-threatening illness, death, dying, and bereavement. This certificate allows social workers to hone their clinical and leadership skills in palliative care while also participating in relational learning in a community of peers with an excellent faculty of experts. Palliative care is becoming more popular among people and families.
Clinical social work interventions have never been more important, but there is a shortage of highly educated clinical social workers who can effectively address the complex needs of those nearing death. The skills of social workers who have been specially trained in this area benefit the person who is sick, their family, social supports, health care providers, and clergy members.
