A&M-Texarkana Master of Social Work Program
To Hold Two Online Information Sessions
TEXARKANA, Texas – Texas A&M University-Texarkana’s Master of Social Work program will be holding two online information sessions for students interested in applying to the program. The sessions will be held via Zoom on March 9 at noon and March 11 at 6:00 pm.
The sessions will cover topics such as
• The social work profession and what social workers do
• Career opportunities in social work
• Program curriculum and field practicum
• Application process for admission to the fall 2021 cohort.
Prospective students will meet current faculty members and the graduate coordinator to ask questions about the program and admissions process.
The MSW program at A&M-Texarkana includes 60 semester credit hours. Graduates will become independently licensed as Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), qualifying them for a wide range of employment opportunities working with various populations such as children, adolescents, adults, the elderly, and the disabled. We project these focus areas to be significant growth areas within the social work field over the next decade and beyond as the population ages and the need for healthcare-related services increases.
To register for either of the upcoming online sessions, please email Betty Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A&M-Texarkana Students Selected to Participate in
DHS Invent2Prevent Violence Challenge
TEXARKANA, Texas – Texas A&M University-Texarkana is one of 25 schools throughout the country invited to participate in this spring’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Collegiate Invent2Prevent Violence Challenge. This real-world project, offered in collaboration with EdVenture Partners, gives TAMUT students a rare opportunity to put their education to work inside a class framework.
Students in the university’s Marketing Promotions class have created an in-class working marketing agency named Eagle iSite. They are responsible for implementing an integrated marketing campaign to educate and inform their local campus about the benefits of unifying our campus to reduce violence and terrorism. Students will use research surveys and other tools to learn more about the DHS’s target audience to accomplish this task. After the students have analyzed their research findings, they will then create and implement their strategy to raise awareness of unifying students’ benefits against violence and terrorism. Students will receive a $2,000 budget to help them bring their plans to life.
At the end of the term, students will measure their success through follow-up research and give a formal presentation to DHS summarizing their campaign and results. “This is a project that allows us to put our knowledge into a real-life experience,” said Jan Johnson, TAMUT student, and Eagle iSite agency co-leader.
Watch for more information about the DHS Collegiate Invent2Prevent Violence Challenge at Texas A&M Texarkana throughout the spring term. For further inquiries regarding the A&M-Texarkana project, please contact Dina Calhoun, student public relations lead, at 903-278-9374 or email@example.com.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. It requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. The Department’s duties are wide-ranging, and its goal is clear – keeping America safe. The core goal of The Office of Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention’s efforts is to equip and empower local efforts – including peers, teachers, community leaders, and law enforcement – to prevent individuals from mobilizing to violence before it becomes a law enforcement matter.
EdVenture Partners has teamed up with nearly 1,000 academic institutions in over 75 countries. They specialize in peer-to-peer, experiential learning programs while addressing marketing, communication, social causes, and sales-related challenges.
