UNE School of Social Work Info Session, Featuring Applied Arts and Social Justice

Information Session

Come learn about UNE's campus based MSW Program in person or live online through zoom!  We offer distinctive advanced integrated clinical education with unique certificate options in Trauma-informed Practice, Applied Arts and Social Justice, and Training in Aging and Diversity ($10,000 Stipend).  Our Field Education network is the largest in Maine and our cutting edge interprofessional opportunities prepare students to become competent leaders in a rapidly changing world.  With multiple, creative, and flexible pathways, UNE ensures that an MSW is attainable for all who aspire to make the world a better place. 

Lori Power, M.A., Ed.D., Coordinator of the Applied Arts and Social Justice (AASJ) Certificate will give a brief presentation about using art in social work practice.  The AASJ Certificate is the first of its kind in the United States.  It formalizes the relationship between the arts and healing and is interprofessional in approach, 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.   MSW Students will be present to discuss current projects. 

Clinical Professor and Director of Field Education, Amy Coha, M.S.W., L.C.S.W,  will follow this with an overview of  UNE's MSW Program at large and discuss what distinguishes our Field Education Program. Students, alumni, and admissions staff will be available to answer any additional questions.  

All information sessions are available live online through zoom. We will send zoom link ut to those who RSVP. Be sure to check out our facebook pageinstagram, and twitter feed to see what's new at UNE's SSW! (@UNE_social_work).
