To assist with developing your learning plan, specializations (formerly known as "concentrations") are described below along with specialization requirements. Please note that EDP currently only offers clinical social work specializations. 


Clinical Social Work

Prepares students for direct practice with individuals of all ages, families and small groups. Students develop comprehensive engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills to enhance the well-being and empowerment of clients across the lifespan. This specialization equips students with the theoretical and applied learning needed to work effectively with a diverse clientele across the lifespan and in a variety of settings -- such as in mental health, schools, hospitals, child welfare and youth justice, aging services, addiction facilities, hospice, shelters, community centers and agencies, and more.
