UMaine MSW Offered in Presque Isle and Falmouth

Presque Isle, Belfast, Falmouth -

ORONO, Maine — The University of Maine School of Social Work is bringing its graduate program to two additional areas of Maine. Starting in September 2012, the Master of Social Work (MSW) program will be offered in Presque Isle and Falmouth in addition to continuing its ongoing programs in Orono and Belfast.

This initiative represents the second three-site MSW program offered by the university. Using telecommunication technology, students from Presque Isle, Falmouth, and Belfast will be united for live classes. Students attend class in their own locations, while the instructors rotate through all three sites. Most classes take place on weekends and in the evening to accommodate students’ busy
daytime schedules.

The first three-site MSW program, bringing together students from Calais, Belfast, and Orono, began in 2009 and culminates in 2012 at which time the new program will begin. Students enrolling in the upcoming three-site program will begin in 2012 and graduate in 2015.

Information sessions will be held in each location: Monday, November 7th in Falmouth; Wednesday, November 9th in Presque Isle; and Monday, November 14th in Belfast.

For more information on the program or to sign up for an information session, contact Victoria Kane at vkane@maine.edu or call 581.2389.
