UNE School of Social Work Open House

Open House

Come learn about UNE's on-campus MSW Program!  Hear about our innovative and flexible programming, specifically designed to meet the needs of busy people. Learn about our two new certificate programs: Trauma-informed Practice and Applied Arts and Social Justice, and hear from Field Faculty about what sets our field education apart.

Professor Lori Power, M.A., Ed.D., Coordinator of the Applied Arts and Social Justice (AASJ) Certificate will be presenting.  The AASJ Certificate Program formalizes the relationship between the arts and healing and is the first program of its kind in the United States.  Its approach is interprofessional, linking artists, art therapists, and community activists with social workers, social work students, and community members.  Students who enroll in the AASJ Certificate learn how to utilize applied arts practice and theory to create social justice, change, and healing.   Current MSW AASJ student Deanna Berry will also be present on her project: "The Mask You Live In: Using Film for Social Change."

Field Faculty member and Clinical Professor, Amy Coha, will follow this with an overview of the Field Education Program and SSW curriculum overall.  SSW admissions staff will be available to answer any other questions you may have.

If you are unable to attend in person, all our Open Houses are available for viewing live online through UNE's LiveStream and on our facebook page.  We will field questions through our facebook and twitter accounts (@UNE_social_work).  Videos of past events can also be found in the UNE LiveStream Video archive as well as our facebook video archive.
