Social Work Now Accepting Applications for Autumn Semester 2016

NEWARK, Ohio, November 5, 2015 — The Ohio State University at Newark is now accepting applications to its undergraduate and graduate level social work programs for autumn semester 2016. Both programs consist of courses taught by faculty from The Ohio State University’s nationally recognized College of Social Work, but can be completed on the Newark campus.

Interested students are encouraged to attend an information session to learn more. Sessions will be held on Tuesday, November 10 in the John L. and Christine Warner Library and Student Center room 175. The bachelor's degree session begins at 5 pm with the master's degree session following at 6:30 pm. Registration is not required for attendance, but is encouraged. Contact Jennifer Seas, social work program manager, at 740-364-9523 or to register or for more information if you are unable to attend.

The Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BSSW) blends distance-learning technologies with traditional classroom instruction. Courses are taught by both faculty within the College of Social Work and regional campus instructors. Students are able to transition seamlessly from the undergraduate to the graduate program, also available at Ohio State Newark.

The Master of Social Work (MSW) is a part-time program which gives students the opportunity to work and complete their degree. Classes begin in autumn semester and continue for nine consecutive semesters. The first year can be completed entirely at the Newark campus; the remaining two years require some courses to be taken at the Columbus campus in conjunction with field practicums that may be completed in the student’s home community. Working professionals may be able to do practicums in their place of employment.

The Ohio State University at Newark offers the best of the Big Ten educational experience, access to Ohio State’s 200 major programs, a rich research heritage and academic excellence.
