College Launches Online BSSW Program
The College has announced the launch of our newest academic offering: the Online BSSW Program. The program is specifically designed for transfer students who have earned 60 credit hours and an Associate of Art (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree from a regionally accredited community college.
All curriculum and program requirements for the Online BSSW Program are identical to those required for the on-campus BSSW Program.
Forensic Social Work Certificate Program
The certificate program in Forensic Social Work, beginning on the Knoxville Campus in the Fall of 2019, is a partnership between the College of Social Work and the College of Law. It provides an opportunity for students to gain knowledge about a system impacting millions of people and will broadly expose students to the criminal justice system through a combination of courses taken at our own college and the College of Law.
Grant for Text-Delivered Counseling
Michael Mason, PhD has received a 3.2 million dollar grant award from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to conduct a randomized clinical trial to test a text-delivered counseling program for young adults (ages 18 to 25) with cannabis use disorder. Young adults in the U.S. have the highest rate of cannabis use disorder compared to other age groups and are the least likely to seek traditional treatment; in contrast, text-delivered treatments increase access and privacy, which can lessen treatment stigmatization. The grant is titled: Treating young adult cannabis use disorder with text messaged-delivered Peer Network Counseling.
