More than 25 students have completed the program so far and are working in the profession in across the country.
The program at Washington Adventist University attracts traditional students who recently completed high school as well as non-traditional students who want to complete their degree or make a career change. Classes are held one evening each week, which allows working students to keep their day jobs. Non-traditional students can complete the general education courses through the School of Graduate and Professional studies which offers classes in the evening, on weekends, and online.
Susan Hornshaw, Ph.D., WAU’s provost is pleased with the strides that the program is making. “Our vision is to produce graduates who bring competence and moral leadership to their communities,” she said. “The Social Work program helps make that vision real—making WAU truly the gateway to service!” she said
According to their website, CSWE is a nonprofit national association representing more than 3,000 individual members, as well as graduate and undergraduate programs of professional social work education. Founded in 1952, it is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the sole accrediting agency for social work education in this country.
