Know someone who might be interested in our MSW program?

The UNC School of Social Work is holding several information sessions, and four free GRE test prep workshops this fall for prospective master’s students. We will also be attending several Idealist Graduate Fairs across the country, including one we’re hosting in Chapel Hill on Sat., Nov. 12.

Information Sessions

MSW Program information sessions give potential applicants a chance to meet some of the faculty, staff and students and an opportunity to ask questions about the School of Social Work. The curriculum, field placements, financial aid, and admissions requirements are among the topics discussed. A faculty member will provide a brief presentation on their areas of practice/research interests and a student panel will answer additional questions from prospective applicants.

The sessions are held from 2-4:30 p.m. (with the exception of Oct. 24, Nov. 22 and Dec. 19) in Room 300 at the School of Social Work. Please contact Tiffany Carver to confirm the date and to register.

Each fair also features workshops on the application process, financial aid, and transitioning back to school. The fairs are free and open to the public. The School of Social Work will attend fairs in the following cities this fall:

  • Tuesday, November 1 – Atlanta, Ga.
  • Saturday, November 12 – Chapel Hill (UNC SSW will serve as the host!)

Other Recruiting Events

We’ll also be recruiting at the NCACDSS (N.C. Association of County Directors of Social Services) Institute October 26-28 in Hickory and at the Atlanta University Consortium Graduate Fair October 26 on the campus of Clark Atlanta University. (The AUC Consortium Annual Graduate & Professional School Information and Recruitment Fair offers an excellent opportunity to recruit outstanding diversity talent enrolled in the largest consortium of historically Black institutions in the world – Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College and Spelman College.)
