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. For more information on the Masters in Social Work program visit www.annamaria.edu/msw.
Today’s health care system is enormously complex. Not only are there constant advances in research and treatment, but there are also more and more non-clinical decision points for patients and their families. Effectively navigating health plans and community programs can be cumbersome. Anna Maria College offers both clinical and non-clinical degree programs because career options in the health field are more expansive than ever.
Anna Maria offers a Bachelor of Science in Health and Community Service for those looking for non-clinical careers in health care. Graduates from the Health and Community Service program will be able to work as an important member of a healthcare team to guide patients through a variety of complex systems such as health plans, hospitals and ambulatory care organizations, health and human services, public health programs, and medical practice offices. This major can also be used as a stepping stone to similar majors such as nursing, health and human services, and social sciences.
Students looking to pursue clinical careers choose our four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Two program tracks for nursing are offered at Anna Maria College and consist of a traditional four year Bachelor of Science in Nursing for entry-level students and the online RN to BSN completion program for Registered Nurses. The overall goal of the nursing program is to provide high quality education that prepares students to practice safe and compassionate professional nursing care as beginning practitioners. Our inaugural class of nursing graduates saw 93 percent passing the state licensure exam on the first attempt, exceeding state and national averages.
Nationwide, the month of April is dedicated to raising awareness around sexual assault and the social injustice that surrounds it. At Anna Maria College, we view the issue so important that we created a certificate track within the Master of Science in Criminal Justice program focused on Sexual Violence and Trauma.
The coursework covers a variety of topics including species of criminality such as public order crimes, group violence, sexually-motivated crimes, criminal subcultures and “rape culture,” re-victimization, institutional victimization, human trafficking, pornography, sexual abuse against children, role of sexual violence in terrorism/war, the lives of immigrants and refugee, the mentally ill and intellectually disabled/challenged, and other protected class, minority, and disenfranchised members of society. This certificate combines courses and theories from other tracks within the Master’s program including criminal justice, victim studies, and psychology.
Tonisha Pinckney, director of the Master of Science in Criminal Justice program, says that graduates of the program go into careers as therapists, clinicians, police officers, victim advocates, court appointed advocates, legal professionals, rehabilitation facilities, nurses and more. “Collaborations and partnerships have allowed the programs to provide education and leadership beyond the traditional classroom walls,” said Pinckney. Following the school’s mission statement, Anna Maria College educates criminal justice professionals who are committed to professionalism and excellence and are aware of their responsibility to the community.
