Alabama State University has a new Master of Social Work (MSW) degree program, approved recently by the Alabama Commission on Higher Education (ACHE), set to begin Fall 2015. Students admitted will have a choice of pursuing the degree via three different options, which includes:
- traditional (two-year, full time);
- advanced-standing (12 months);
- and part-time (four-year).
The program will prepare students for advanced social work training/academic leadership in the areas of Forensics, Gerontology, Behavioral and Mental Health. The program is designed to attract highly motivated students who demonstrate a strong commitment to promoting social and economic justice. Students will learn to systematically apply social work knowledge and skills (theory, research methods, and best practices) to assist "at-risk" populations.
The Master of Social Work program has begun the two-year process of accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). The program anticipates the accreditation to be final by 2016.
