North Carolina Central University in Durham has announced the introduction of a new advanced-standing program for students in its master of social work program. The program is offered to students who have earned a bachelor’s degree in social work from a college or university accredited by the Council of Social Work Education and who had a grade point average of at least 3.25 in their social work classes. They can complete the degree program in one year instead of the usual two.
Students in the new program will attend class three evenings a week during the summer. During the fall semester students will join second-year students in the master of social work program in evening programs two nights a week and all day Saturday. Students will also spend 24 hours per week in field training.
