UNC Charlotte Among 'Best for Vets'

UNC Charlotte is one of the 125 four-year institutions to make the Military Times "Best for Vets: Colleges 2016" rankings.

An annual survey in its six year, the Military Times rankings provide the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement.

David Vacchi, associate director for veteran student services, said being ranked by Military Times is "an important first-time achievement for UNC Charlotte as we are finally being recognized for the great work the University is doing for veterans every day. There are areas in which we can improve as a campus and the Veterans Services Office will be working diligently to make the campus even more welcoming for veterans."

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.
