Representing a Global Network of Social Work Professionals
As a graduate of the Wurzweiler School of Social Work, you will become part of a diverse yet interconnected family of more than 7,000 individuals and gain access to alumni resources that can serve you during your studies and long after. Align with graduates who represent more than 60 different countries and most of the continental United States and occupy a variety of social work roles, including:
- Professors of Social Work
- College Deans
Enrich Your Future, Stay Connected
When communicating with students who are nearing graduation, Wurzweiler’s own Professor Daniel Pollack encourages students to stay in touch with at least two colleagues and one professor. Staying connected to those who understand your journey, and in some cases have journeyed alongside you, can open up unique possibilities for mentorship, professional introductions and perhaps even job offers. To help facilitate these relationships, which are often maintained across great distances, Wurzweiler offers simple and accessible communication platforms such as print publications, ClassNotes and YU ALUMinate, all managed by the Yeshiva University Office of Alumni Affairs.
Where Many Paths Converge, Yours Will Emerge
Students who choose to pursue this specialization will gain the skills to work as a social worker in any field, but with a gerontology and palliative care certification, students will also learn to provide holistic support to those facing these psychosocial and developmental issues.
