School Social Work
The School Social Work program is designed to train school social workers and provide them with the competencies to practice in a variety of traditional and non-traditional primary and secondary education settings. Such competencies include assessing the needs of school children, designing and implementing interventions, and making referrals to other professionals and agencies as needed. School social workers are prepared to function collaboratively with other professionals, and assist the school and the community in mobilizing necessary resources on behalf of children and adolescents. For more information, please refer to the School Social Work Program. Or, you can contact Sarah Andrews, MSSA, Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs at 216.368.2327.
Management and Leadership
This certificate allows students to pursue 12 academic hours focused coursework designed to prepare them for managing and leading in a range of social welfare settings. The certificate is available to all MSSA students regardless of concentration or specialization, and can be completed within the normal master’s framework. To do so, students add to or substitute for concentration-related electives the courses required for the certificate. The certificate is comprised of four required courses – an introduction to management and leadership (zero credit hours), as well as courses on leadership/supervision, budgeting and finance, and program design. In addition, students select one elective based on their interests from a set of approved courses. If needed, students can seek approval from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs to exceed 16 hours of coursework in specific semesters in order to complete the certificate. Students have the option of enrolling in the certificate program concurrent with their MSSA or as a non-degree-seeking student at MSASS. These students must complete a non-degree application verifying that they possess a bachelor’s degree in social work or a related field. Students must complete the Notice of Intent to Pursue the CML and submit this to the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for approval. Specific questions may be directed to Robert Fischer, PhD, the advisor for the certificate program.
