Clarke University now has an articulation agreement in place with Edgewood College in Madison, Wis., that will help students interested in pursuing Clarke’s Master of Social Work degree save both time and money.
Edgewood College currently provides social work courses for students to meet the requirements for the Social Work Training Certificate issued by the state of Wisconsin. The MSW program at Clarke University will now accept six of these social work courses.
“The Social Work Department at Clarke University is pleased to begin the partnership with Edgewood College,” said Dr. Regina Boarman, chair of the Clarke Social Work Department. “This articulation agreement provides students with an opportunity to complete their MSW with career paths in mental health and medical social work.”
Patricia Egan, senior lecturer and coordinator of the Human Service Program at Edgewood College, said the school is looking forward to the partnership with Clarke.
“This partnership creates an efficient pathway for our students who want to continue on for their MSW,” Egan said.
Clarke University’s Master of Social Work program also recently received accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education. In addition, the MSW program added a new Hybrid Weekend Program beginning in the fall of 2017. This is a three-year extended program that allows individuals to achieve an MSW while still working full time. The other MSW pathways are the traditional day programs of Advanced Standing, for those who have a Bachelor’s in Social Work, and the traditional Two Year Program. Extended pathways are available for both the Advanced Standing and Two Year Traditional Program for those needing more time.
