Post-Master's & Workforce Development

The post-master’s program at the Silberman School of Social Work is designed for master-level social workers, therapists, counselors, and other human service professionals who wish to advance their careers and enhance their skills. Our classes retain the core values that inform all of our programs: a commitment to social change, diversity, and practice in the urban environment. Taught by distinguished teachers, trainers, clinicians, researchers, and community organizers, students gain practical, hands on and cutting-edge knowledge of a wide range of contemporary social work issues. Classes range in duration from two day workshops to one or two semester-long courses and typically meet in the evening and on weekends.


Silberman offers the following discounts for all Continuing Education and Training courses, unless otherwise noted:

  • 10% Silberman/Hunter School of Social Work alumni and adjunct faculty (with ID)
  • 15% current students of Silberman (with ID)
  • 15% active field instructors (have student(s) this academic year)
  • 15% for agencies sending groups of 5 or more individuals (paying together)

The current online registration system cannot process these discounts. Individuals that are eligible should register in person, via email, or via fax. Complete the registration form and submit with a copy of your student/alumni/adjunct faculty ID. Field Instructors should note on the registration form that they are active 2013-2014 instructors and the registration office will verify with Silberman.
