Clarke University in Dubque, Iowa, now has an articulation agreement in place with the University of Wisconsin-Platteville that will help students interested in pursuing Clarke’s Master of Social Work degree save both time and money.
UW-Platteville currently provides social work courses for students to meet the requirements for the Social Work Training Certificate issued by the state of Wisconsin. The MSW program at Clarke University will now accept six of these social work classes.
“The social work department at Clarke University is pleased to begin the partnership with the psychology department at UW-Platteville,” said Dr. Regina Boarman, chair of the Clarke social work department. “This articulation agreement provides students with an opportunity to complete their MSW with career paths in mental health and medical social work.”
Dr. Elizabeth Gates, chair of the psychology department at UW-Platteville, said the school is looking forward to the partnership with Clarke. “The psychology department at UW-Platteville is thrilled about the articulation agreement with Clarke University,” Gates said. “It is a wonderful opportunity for our students to obtain a master's degree in social work in a shortened period of time from a progressive program.”
