Anna Maria College has expanded its degree opportunities for students pursuing careers in the social services sector. The college’s new Master of Social Work (MSW) program is uniquely designed so students take classes while doing concurrent fieldwork. This gives participants the chance to apply what they learn in the classroom to real world experience, allowing for a more well-rounded education and advantages when it comes to job placement.
Anna Maria College alumni with social work degrees can be found working in a variety of employment settings around the region, including social services agencies, hospitals and treatment centers, nursing homes, prisons and correctional facilities, elementary and secondary schools, nonprofit organizations, as well as in local, state, and federal government.
The graduate program is approved for candidacy by the Council on Social Work Education and is now accepting applications for the 2017 fall semester. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a full or part-time program that will run on week nights and weekends.
