Social Work Continuing Education Courses
Options for Ongoing Learning
At the Graduate School of Social Work, learning doesn’t stop at graduation. We provide a wide range of continuing education (CE) offerings for alumni and the wider community. You can enhance your professional skills and resources in the following concentration areas:
- Health and mental health
- Social innovation
- Program development and evaluation
- Diversity, inclusion and social justice
Our social work CE programs — several workshops per quarter — draw on faculty, alumni and community expertise in areas such as policy and direct practice. We also cover topics that impact the communities we work with every day — topics such as Islamophobia and environmental justice. A recent integrative health workshop introduced participants to different health care approaches and identified how health practitioners can innovate in providing client-centered care.
100% Of our continuing education workshops qualify for Colorado social work licensure, and most qualify for National Association of Social Workers and American Psychological Association continuing education credits.

I am continually impressed with how well GSSW keeps current in offering cutting-edge instruction and experiences in response to the needs of the local and global communities, as well as the needs of society as a whole. This is vital so social workers are prepared and can make a difference in the lives of the people we serve through the strong foundation of knowledge, skills and experience that GSSW offers.
