Social Work courses being offered in spring
CONTACT: Dr. Joseph Badgley, dean of academic affairs, 304-424-8242.
Due to increased interest by area residents, two social work courses at the baccalaureate degree level are being offered this spring at West Virginia University at Parkersburg.
West Virginia State College will deliver the courses which are part of the curriculum for its nationally approved bachelor of science degree in social work. WVU Parkersburg made arrangements with WV State to offer the courses to "test the waters."
"Enrollment in these courses will gauge interest in delivery of additional classes leading to the bachelor of social work degree," said Joseph Badgley, WVU Parkersburg dean of academic affairs. "We are delighted that WV State is partnering with us to make this possible."
The two courses, Social Work 131, Introduction to Social Work, offered Wednesdays, 4:00-6:45 p.m., and Social Work 303, Social Work Values and Ethics, offered Thursdays, 6:30-8:45p.m., are appropriate for students considering the program and are approved for continuing education credit for those working toward social work licensure. These courses will begin the week of January 13.
WVU Parkersburg offered a two-year degree in social services technology for a number of years but discontinued the program several years ago when the state of West Virginia began requiring a bachelor's degree for state licensure.
Additional information about the social work courses is available by contacting the Dean of Academic Affairs office at WVU Parkersburg, 424-8242. WVU Parkersburg is closed through Jan. 1 for the holidays.
