MSW Welcome

Kelly Reath, MSW, PhD MSW Program Director

Welcome from Dr. Kelly Reath, MSW, PhD
ETSU MSW Program Director

Welcome to the ETSU Master of Social Work (MSW) program. Our program began in 2003, was awarded candidacy for accreditation in 2004, and was granted initial accreditation in 2007. We are proud to offer a high quality MSW program with a clinical concentration. For those with undergraduate degrees in fields other than social work, we offer a two-year traditional program. For those with an undergraduate degree in social work (BSW), we offer the advanced standing program. We have both full-time and part-time study options. We have a wonderful group of faculty with a broad ranging experience and expertise, and I am proud to say that our full-time faculty teach the majority of our courses. This is a significant benefit to our students. We also have a strong tradition of student involvement through the Master of Social Work Student Association (MSWSA), which meets monthly and is a strong voice of advocacy in our department and for the profession. Their activities include the annual Legislative Conference and representation on faculty committees. We are also fortunate to have a strong community relationship through our field program and the Community Advisory Committee. Visit our website for more information about our program, including admissions information. If you would like to come visit us in beautiful Northeast Tennessee or if you have more questions, feel free to contact me personally.

Thank you for your interest in the ETSU MSW Program.

Dr. Kelly Reath
