Welcome from Dr. Mary Mullins
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
traditional program, both full-time and part-time. For those with an undergraduate degree in social work
(BSW), we offer the advanced standing program, both full-time and part-time. We also
offer the Advanced Standing Part Time Curriculum as part of our distance education
in Asheville, NC and Kingsport, TN. We have a wonderful group of faculty with 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.
Mary Mullins, PhD, MSW
