MSW Distance Option - Ashland Site
The MSW-DO Ashland Site, begun in 1997, recruits and admits students from several counties in Southern Oregon and Northern California. The MSW-DO Ashland Site is located on the beautiful Southern Oregon University campus in Ashland where students attend classes taught by PSU School of Social Work faculty in a university setting. Students have access to SOU's beautiful and extensive Dixie and Lenn Hannon Library.
Our site has long-standing partnerships with many area agencies, including the Veteran's Administration's Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Clinics and Center in White City; local county and non-profit mental health agencies, such as Jackson County Health & Human Services, Family Solutions, and Klamath Youth Development Center; various hospitals, home health, and hospice agencies in Jackson, Klamath and Josephine Counties; community health centers and school-based health centers; and the Department of Human Services Child Welfare offices.
MSW-DO students attend classes every Friday all three years of the program on the SOU Campus. Students complete each of their two years of practicum in agencies in their home communities whenever possible.
Students complete Foundation Year coursework in years one and two. Click here to view the Foundation and Advanced curriculum grid.
The admissions materials for the next cohort will be available in fall 2017.
