Violence Against Women and Children Certificate Program

Through its Center on Violence against Women and Children (VAWC), the Rutgers School of Social Work offers a certificate program for M.S.W. students. The certificate program is intended to offer students the opportunity to specialize their advanced-year learning about issues of violence against women and children in order to be prepared to enter the field upon graduation. Students accepted for the certificate program will receive notation of completion of the certificate program on their transcripts.

Requirements for Completion of the VAWC Certificate

Students interested in completing the VAWC certificate program must be entering their advanced year in the M.S.W. program and must complete the following requirements:

  • Complete the following required VAWC coursework (12 credits)
    1. HBSE II: Violence and Abuse in Adulthood or HBSE II: Violence and Abuse in Childhood
    2. Two electives related to violence against women and children, as approved by VAWC staff
    3. Advanced Social Welfare Policy and Services II: Violence Against Women and Children
  • Fieldwork must be at a VAWC-related placement that focuses on key areas related to violence against women and children, including prevention, practice, nonprofit management, and policy. This will be arranged in conjunction with the field office and VAWC.
