Newark, Ohio (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
The Ohio State University at Newark announced the addition of two new degree programs. Students can now earn a Bachelor of Science in Social Work (B.S.S.W.) and a Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.) in early and middle childhood education at Ohio State Newark.
The Undergraduate Social Work program at Ohio State Newark prepares students to assume beginning professional roles as direct service practitioners in social welfare organizations and lays the foundation for further social work education at the graduate level.
“We are very excited about the community response we received so far for this new program!” said Jennifer Seas, MSW, LISW-S, Social Work Program Manager. “Over 40 students have been admitted to the BSSW major this fall.”
Courses at Newark are taught by both faculty within the College of Social Work and regional campus instructors. Regional campus students can receive the same comprehensive social work education that they would receive on OSU’s Columbus campus.
Students were already able to take almost all the classes necessary to earn a master in Social Work (M.S.W.) at Ohio State Newark, with just a few classes required at the Columbus campus. Now students will be able to experience a seamless transition from the undergraduate to the graduate program, all at Ohio State Newark.
The Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.) in early and middle childhood education and the early education licensure prepares graduates to teach age three through grade three across the curriculum; the middle childhood licensure program prepares graduates to teach grades four through nine in two subject areas of the student’s choosing. The degree can be completed in four years at Ohio State Newark.
The education programs at Ohio State Newark prepare future teachers and support the professional development of current teachers. The department delivers full programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, meeting pre-licensure, licensure and post licensure/certification needs.
