Professional Education Programs (PEP)

Social workers face a complex and ever-challenging environment. Our mission to provide high quality, cutting-edge continuing education opportunities remains the same.

Professional Education Programs at BU School of Social Work offers courses, workshops, and postgraduate certificate programs to individuals and organizations throughout the human service field in New England. We focus on theory-based skill development, application of new areas of research, and advancement of critical thinking. Most PEP programs are evidence-based, skills-oriented, and tailored to focus on contemporary practice issues in both macro and clinical social work.

The School is an approved provider of Continuing Education Credits (CECs) and has been authorized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Board of Social Work Registration to approve offerings from other institutions for CECs.

To receive a CEC certificate, you must attend 100% of the seminar, as per guidelines set forth by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
