Students in the Army UK Master of Social Work Program participate in the same 60-hour curriculum model as civilian Master of Social Work students at the University of Kentucky College of Social Work. Program requirements are identical for Department of Defense and military personnel as those imposed by the University of Kentucky College of Social Work Masters program.
The University of Kentucky College of Social Work was recently awarded a contract to become the collaborating institution for the US Army’s Master of Social Work Program.
The Army’s MSW, housed at the Army Medical Department Center and School (AMEDD C&S), Ft. Sam Houston, TX, was established in 2009 in response to an identified need for more clinical social worker officers to serve in the Department of Defense healthcare systems. The Program produces 15-40 new uniformed and DoD civilian social workers each academic year.
The University of Kentucky successfully bid to become the collaborating university for the 2017-2012 contract period. Beginning February 2108, students accepted into Army program will complete the UK College of Social Work’s Clinical Social Work Curriculum.
Through this cooperative agreement, students who matriculate through the Army program will be enrolled in the University of Kentucky and affiliated faculty members will receive appointment to the University of Kentucky Graduate Faculty. Upon program completion, DoD students will be conferred the Master of Social Work degree from the University of Kentucky.
