Doctorate in Social Work


The DSW application period for the 2015-2016 academic year
begins on April 1, 2015.

The Tulane University Doctorate in Social Work is ideally suited for social work professionals seeking rigorous training in advanced clinical practice, professional leadership, and applied research. It is the only program of its kind in the Gulf South, and one of only a small number of doctoral-level clinical social work degrees nationwide. With its intensive, accelerated curriculum and experiential learning model, students can satisfy all degree requirements in three years, without career disruption.

The DSW program operates at three Tulane University locations: New Orleans, LA;  Biloxi, MS; and Madison, MS.
