New Part-time Master's Degree in Social Work
A new master’s program in the UNC Charlotte School of Social Work will make it possible for enrollees to earn a graduate degree as a part-time student while taking many classes remotely.
The School of Social Work in the College of Health and Human Services will begin offering a part-time plan of study for its Master of Social Work (MSW) degree beginning in summer 2016. Created with working professionals in mind, the curriculum is the same as that offered in the full-time MSW program but allows students to earn the degree in three years, rather than two.
The School of Social Work developed the program in concert with conversations with regional program managers and service staff in disciplines that employ social workers.
West to Receive Scholarship and Service Award
Mark West, chair of the English Department, will receive the 2016 Anne Deveraux Jordan Award.
Presented by the Children’s Literature Association, the award is a kind of lifetime achievement award, recognizing significant contributions in scholarship and service to the field of children’s literature over the course of the scholar’s career. West will receive the award at the association’s annual conference in June 2016.
West has taught children’s literature courses at UNC Charlotte every semester since he joined the faculty in 1984. He draws from his eclectic background, including his doctoral work in American studies, and teaches his children’s literature classes from an interdisciplinary point of view.
