About Us

The tools, knowledge, and support you need to make a difference.

Navigate diversity and change

Today’s world is more diverse, and more aware than ever before, with unique opportunities and difficulties. The Graduate School of Social Work will give you the ability to navigate the complex challenges of our times, even as they continue to change.

Effect change

We prepare you for clinical social work. You will master more than the basics of counseling, learning how to develop a therapeutic relationship with your client and how to use that relationship to effect beneficial change in your client.

Within reach

We are committed to nurturing a student body that represents the diversity in the communities we serve, and work hard to offer reasonable tuition and flexible financial-aid options. As a Yellow Ribbon School, we're proud to help veterans utilize their GI Bill benefits and provide opportunities to all those dedicated to affecting positive change.   

Equal parts textbook and experience

Our philosophy is activism as academics. You have the opportunity to participate in a fellowship program that allows select students to work with military veterans or gain training in Elder Care. On one of the coldest nights of the year, you can walk the streets of Manhattan with NYC’s Department of Homeless Services and help raise awareness by counting the city’s homeless population. And, as faculty, we lead our own community within Touro by example through mentorship and collaboration. 

Our seminar-style classes give you easy access to your professors and a wealth of information and know-how. Internships and fieldwork give you hands-on experience, allowing you to pursue your interests, find new ones, round out your capabilities, and apply what you’ve learned. Our students have worked with young children and the elderly, veterans, recovering addicts, the formerly incarcerated, and everyone in between.

By graduation day, you’ll be ready to conquer anything, and equipped to help anyone.
