The goal of the graduate certificate program in School Social Work is to prepare selected MSW students with the specialized knowledge and skills required to work in the field of school social work in a public school setting. Students who complete this certificate program will be highly qualified to step into a school social work position in any county in Florida. This certificate program may also be of interest to students in related majors who want to understand the functions of the Master of Social Work professional, but will not be employed in school social work positions.
