The Social Work Programs at the College of Staten Island, The City University of New York are committed to excellence in teaching, service, and the creation and dissemination of knowledge. We draw upon social constructionism to inform and guide transformative social work practices. We strive to create an environment in which the human rights of all people are respected, diversity is embraced, and the values and ethics of the social work profession are upheld. We provide graduates with the knowledge, skills and values to dismantle oppression and injustice; foster human and community well-being; and create a world that is socially and economically just and equitable.
To achieve this mission, the College of Staten Island offers social work degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSSW) degree prepares students for entry level generalist urban practice. The BSSW program provides a local and global context for understanding and addressing the experiences of people and societies that includes knowledge of cultural, economic, and political factors; and that fosters human and community well-being, with particular emphasis on matters of social and economic justice, and global interconnectedness. The Master of Social Work (MSW) degree prepares students for advanced urban transformative practice with people with disabilities (intellectual, physical, sensory, psychiatric, chronic health and other impairments). The MSW program educates social workers from a critical disabilities perspective to employ transformative social work practices with people with disabilities. Acknowledging our global interconnectedness, we strive to understand and address the experiences of diverse people and societies; foster human and community well-being; and, create a world that is socially and economically just and equitable.
