Elective and Non-Degree Courses

Professional development, licensure requirement, MSW application strengthening — no matter what the reason, an online elective course is a great way to take advantage of a flexible, high quality learning opportunity. Whether you are an MSW student, applicant or already a human service professional, we invite you to become a part of the UB School of Social Work family.

We offer a variety of elective courses each fall, spring and summer semester that can be taken for credits in seated, hybrid and fully online formats. Those wishing to take a course as a non-matriculated/non-degree student may also do so.

Continuing Education Information

CEU's for NY LMSW's and LCSW's are available for select MSW elective courses. Upon completion of your course, you may use the instructions and form at this link to request your certificate.

If you are a current UB Social Work student, register for elective courses in the same manner that you register for all of your other classes.

If you are not a current UB Social Work student, you will need to apply for non-degree status before you can register for elective courses.
