UNO to Start MSW Program in South Sioux City
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) School of Social Work will start a new off-campus Master of Social Work Degree program in South Sioux City, Nebraska beginning in May. The program, open only to persons holding an accredited Bachelor's Degree in Social Work, is expected to initially have18 students.
“This program is exciting for UNO and for these students,” said Theresa Barron-McKeagney, director of the School of Social Work. “It will certainly open up career opportunities and create stronger communities.”
Clinical social work will be the concentration area for the new MSW students. Students will be able to complete their degrees in two years and one semester. Of the 13 required courses, five will be online, six will be face-to-face classes taught at the South Sioux City Education Center (SSCEC), and two will be practicum courses that students will complete in agencies near their hometowns.

An MSW orientation event for the students will take place at SSCEC on April 30 starting at 10 a.m. The session will bring together the students for the first time.
