Ryan Zayac (rzayac) (Tue, 13 Jun 2023 19:24:30 GMT): The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) recognizes the MSW as a terminal degree for instruction in Master's programs (see attached document). Although UNA does not recognize the MSW as a terminal degree, we are supportive of faculty with an MSW teaching select courses in our MSW program. It should be noted that SACSCOC did not indicate any concerns during our last reaffirmation review related to this issue.
