Opportunity To Serve Others
Professionally trained Social Workers can be an asset in multitude of roles, whether its welfare of laborers, to aid people with learning disabilities, patient counseling in hospitals, to help women or children in distress/under trial or to empower villagers associated with CSR foundations.
Wide Scope & Great Career Options
Social Workers can apply for jobs in industries either as HR Managers, Labor Welfare Officers or Program Managers in CSR projects. In the health sector, they can work as Medical Social Workers or Counselors. In schools, they can work as shadow teachers, and in villages they can conduct advocacy programs for government policies and schemes. They can also work with international agencies such as UNICEF, UNESCO and FAO or with the government in departments related to tribal development, disaster management, child protection, dowry prevention and rehab centers.
A Growing Field With Job Security
In a developing country like India, the demand for MSW professionals is constantly rising. Moreover, a career in Social Work comes with job security because there will always be communities in need of resources and advocates for change. You can also start your own NGO or social enterprise and become a job creator instead of a job seeker.
Life Skills Development
Pursuing MSW doesn't just prepare you for a career in social work, but also develops life skills and perspectives that come in handy throughout your life.
The School of Liberal Studies and Education launched the MSW Program in 2016 with the goal of training students to become professional social workers, who thrive in all kinds of work environments - right from villages to international agencies.
The School is well connected with government bodies, non-profits and CSR Foundations, who act as Partners and offer practical training to students through field work and internship opportunities. The School initiates and gets involved in numerous activities, from Blood Donation Camps to Awareness Skits, to ensure that students have a variety of experiences that keep them rooted, but also give them the chance to fly high.
The two-year, full time postgraduate program is designed to train students to take up leadership responsibilities in the development sector by providing required knowledge, skills, attitude, values and commitment essential for the field of Social Work.
By engaging students in intensive field work, the Program will ready students for roles in industries, government bodies and non-government organizations, wherein they will be able to work independently or collaboratively in the areas of social policy, social service and social administration.
Through interdisciplinary courses and holistic understanding of the social sector, the program will equip students to work in the areas of Corporate Social Responsibility, Labor Welfare and Human Resource Management, Environment, Gender, Women and Child Welfare, Medical and Psychiatric Social Work, and will develop their competency in conducting research, preparing reports, and advocating policy, programs and campaigns.

Fieldwork and Research Project
Each student undergoes credit-based fieldwork in four different domain areas of social work, which are: urban community setting, rural community setting, medical psychiatric setting, and HR/IR.
Another integral part of the post graduate degree program is the two semester-long Research Project during the 3rd & 4th semester, under the guidance of a domain expert. Both Fieldwork and Research Project provide an opportunity for the students to explore their interest in their field of choice and build a healthy and positive connection with preferred agencies, to pave the way for future placements.
Rural Camp and Study Tour
Each student is required to undertake two compulsory components of the curriculum i.e. Rural Camp and Study Tour at the end of 1st and 3rd semester, respectively.
Both the activities help the students to develop and demonstrate culturally responsive, ethical, evidence-based practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. These activities are partly led and managed by students and in the process, they learn to organize and manage events. They also experience group living as a part of these activities.
Industry Connect
Regular live projects, guest lectures, field visits and internships expose students to contemporary issues, innovations, and actions on the field. This enables students to identify areas of interest, explore possibilities and learn from the subject matter experts in real scenarios.
The NUV Industry Connect provides our graduates a double advantage – firstly they are more employable and as they have industry experience, they perform better in their first job and therefore, tend to grow faster.
