PITT-BRADFORD TO HOLD INFORMATION SESSION FOR MASTER OF SOCIAL WORK COHORT

PITT-BRADFORD TO HOLD INFORMATION SESSION

FOR MASTER OF SOCIAL WORK COHORT


BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will hold an informational session July 13 about the University of Pittsburgh’s Master of Social Work degree offered on the Bradford campus.

The session, which will take place at 6 p.m. in Room 162 of Swarts Hall on the Pitt-Bradford campus, will feature Phillip Mack, director of admissions for the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work, which is consistently ranked in the top 10 social work programs in the country.

Stephanie Eckstrom, coordinator of the MSW program in Bradford, will also be on hand.

Topics to be addressed include the admissions process, program structure, curriculum, financial aid and more. Applications are now being accepted for Pitt-Bradford’s fifth cohort, or class, being formed for Fall 2010. Prospective students can expect to complete the degree requirements by December 2013.

The MSW program at Pitt-Bradford is a part-time program offered by the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Social Work in cooperation with the Bradford campus. It is taught by full-time and part-time School of Social Work faculty members, some of whom are members of the local social work community.

The program consists of 42 credits of course work and 18 credits of field placement. Courses take place on the Bradford campus.

The MSW program at Pitt-Bradford offers a concentration in direct practice with individuals, families and small groups, with a specialization in children, youth and families.

The MSW program at Pitt-Bradford admitted its first class of MSW students in Fall 2002. Its most recent class graduated in December.

“We have graduated 60 social work professionals and have 16 in the current cohort,” Eckstrom said. “These individuals bring their master’s level knowledge and skills to a variety of settings: mental health, geriatrics, substance abuse, forensics, child welfare and working with individuals, families and communities.”

Students completing the MSW degree are eligible to take the examination to become a licensed social worker.
