has been at the forefront of these developments. We invite you to learn from our world renowned experts.
The program encompasses both public disasters and personal life crises: terror, war and natural disasters in the public realm, along with such stressors as immigration, domestic violence, divorce, illness and bereavement in the personal realm.
Please note, that while the degree offered by the program is granted by the Bob Shapell School of Social Work, it is not an MSW degree. Graduates of the program will receive a Master of the Arts (MA) degree.
