Virginia Commonwealth University

Continuing education

Since opening its doors as the Richmond School of Social Economy in 1917, the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Social Work has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the top schools in the nation for preparing social workers to excel in their profession.

Today, being professionally prepared goes far beyond the acquisition of a social work degree. Professional social workers are dedicated to a career-long process of refreshing skills and acquiring new knowledge.

Each year, VCU offers social work practitioners a variety of continuing professional development opportunities in both formal and informal settings of seminars, workshops, speaker presentations and conference offerings.

We encourage you to visit this section of our website often to keep abreast of the ongoing educational choices we offer and to learn about the specific programs that will earn participants continuing education units for licensure in Virginia.

If the school can be of further service to you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
