LEWISTON – All interested students and community members are invited to attend an information session on Oct. 5 or 18 about the Master in Social Work program offered by the University of Southern Maine.

Each session will include a discussion of the program focus, the curriculum, the admission requirements and deadlines, as well as a general discussion about career opportunities for MSWs in Maine and the Northeast.

The presenter will be Dr. Vincent Faherty, interim director of the USM School of Social Work.

The MSW program prepares graduates for advanced-generalist, community social work practice. Students are involved with faculty in a learning and mentoring process designed to facilitate personal and professional growth.

Students are prepared for practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. The program consists of 64 credits that can be taken in a two-or four-year sequence. The part-time, four-year sequence is offered late afternoons and evenings when possible.

The information sessions will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, and 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, both in Room 170 at USM’s Lewiston-Auburn College, 51 Westminster St.

Those unable to attend who wish to be included on a mailing list are asked to send their contact information to [email protected] More information about the MSW program may be found online at www.usm.maine.edu/swo/msw.htm.
