A&M-Texarkana Launches Master of Social Work Degree in Fall 2020

According to a press release, Texas A&M University-Texarkana officials have recently been given the approval to begin offering a Master of Social Work degree beginning with the fall 2020 semester. The MSW program will prepare students as therapists and to provide direct intervention at the individual, group, organizational and community levels.

Graduates will be able to become independently licensed as Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), qualifying them for a wider range of employment opportunities working with various populations (children, adolescents, adults, elderly, disabled, etc.). “The MSW program will include a specialization in mental health with an emphasis in substance abuse and trauma-informed care,” said Dr. Kristine Yells, TAMUT’s social work program director. “Other electives will prepare students to work with a variety of populations in different settings. These areas of focus are projected to be significant areas of growth within the social work field over the next decade and beyond as the population ages and the need for health care-related services increases.”

The MSW program will include 60 semester credit hours. Information about the program and details for applying can be found on the TAMUT website at www.tamut.edu.

Dr. Yells will be presenting a live information session Thursday, April 30th at 12:00 p.m. via Zoom. She will be joined by Susan Gleason, TAMUT’s graduate program coordinator. Together they will explain the program requirements and application

process and then answer questions from participants. Anyone interested in the new academic program is encouraged to participate using the login information below:
