About the School Social Work Major
In the fall of 2017, Mount Union’s program in school social work will be discontinued. Students enrolled at the institution during or prior to the 2016-2017 Academic Year will have the opportunity to pursue and complete the program. The school social work program will not be available to students entering in the fall of 2017 or after.
The School Social Work Program at the University of Mount Union is an interdisciplinary program that allows students to pursue coursework in sociology, psychology and education in order to prepare them for work in educational settings.
This major is a perfect fit for those interested in working in K-12 settings, but do not necessarily want to become certified classroom teachers. Graduates from the School Social Work Program may pursue a career working with students, teaching staff, parents of students, special education teachers, school administrators and community agencies to help students reach their academic and social goals.
While the major in school social work does not result in licensure, it provides students with a streamlined curriculum that offers several valuable experiential opportunities, such as our required field placement, for students to explore career interests located within the educational setting before committing to advanced study in a graduate program.
