Belfast.  Hutchinson Center in Belfast will hold an Information Session on Dec. 5th at noon to explain the process for the new Weekend MSW program starting in September 2010.

The UMaine Hutchinson Center MSW program is designed for the professional who is working full-time. Classes convene on Friday nights (5:30 to 8 p.m.) and again on Saturday morning (9:00  to 11:30 a.m.). over the course of regular Fall, Spring, and Summer terms. Students register for six credit hours (2 graduate classes) that then meet on alternate weekends. Thus, one class meets on the first weekend and the second class meets on the next scheduled weekend. The classes are offered year-round making it possible to complete the Master’s degree as a part- time student in two to three years, depending on the applicant’s undergraduate program of study. The cohort model allows students to network and form professional relationships that will last beyond the end of the program. Professionals from all over the state and from New Brunswick, Canada, have graduated from the five cohorts held to date.

An Information Session is planned for

            Saturday, December 5th, from 12:00 to 1:30 pm

            UMaine Hutchinson Center, 80 Belmont Ave., Belfast

            Current faculty and cohort members will be available to answer questions.

Light refreshments provided.

The University of Maine Department of Social Work delivers this Master’s in Social Work (MSW) degree, a nationally accredited graduate program. The MSW prepares professionals to assume leadership roles in private practice and community agencies and to deliver high quality services to clients from all walks of life. The curriculum emphasizes integrating research-based theory into professional practice through both didactic coursework and supervised practice in a variety of settings.

The UMaine Hutchinson Center supports the MSW program by providing meeting space, technical support, negotiated discounted rates at local motels, and with some free rooms available from our Senior College members.
