School of Social Work launches new part-time master's degree

The School of Social Work launched a new part-time weekend Master’s degree program (MSW) this spring at two sites: the Madison campus and the UW-Eau Claire campus.

Part of the School’s mission is to help the state meet increasing demands for social workers throughout Wisconsin. Area stakeholders in Madison and Eau Claire provided data that helped shape the program’s design and curricular emphasis in child, youth and family welfare.

Professor Kristi Slack directs the program with help from Professor Gloria Fennel (UW-Eau Claire) who serves as the Co-Director of the Eau Claire site.  Diane Brandt, M.S.W., coordinates the program at both sites.
