Guests will gather both an understanding of what it takes to receive the MSW degree and information on the curriculum and timeline of courses throughout the program. Attendees can also look forward to testimonials from a graduate and a current student in the Newman MSW program.

The session will be led by Jennifer Jones, director of field education for the MSW program, along with other Newman MSW professors in attendance.

“Our program is trauma-competent and trauma-informed curriculum and clinical focused,” Jones said. “As part of the session, we will also go over the practicum portion of the program, which is the internship part of the program.”

Newman offers the MSW program both on campus in Wichita, Kansas, and in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Evening classes are available in both locations to suit working professionals and provide one-on-one attention with experienced faculty.

The application process for summer 2022-fall 2022 admissions to the MSW program opens in early October. 

“You do not have to have a bachelor’s in social work to apply,” Jones added. “Just a degree from an accredited university and a 3.0 GPA.”
