GSS Continuing Education

Social work continuing education

Looking to explore new career opportunities or to gain insights into today's top social work issues? Our continuing education department offers a variety of social work courses, workshops, and events for your professional development. All programs are taught by experienced, qualified health professionals (QHPs).

Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service is recognized by The State Education Department’s State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers - #0066.

Although we have cancelled all on-campus events due to the COVID-19 virus, including the continuing education classes scheduled for March – May. 2020, we are offering three of these classes as webinars. The content and number of CEH’s remain the same for these classes. Detailed information on each class, the instructor, and registration can be accessed by clicking the button just above. Additional continuing education webinars may be added, so please check back here occasionally.

We look forward to offering on-campus classes when our Lincoln Center campus is again open to the public
