Social Interaction

To Moravian College’s cooperative programs with other universities in the fields of engineering, dentistry, environmental science, allied health professions, and computer science, add advanced counseling.

Moravian Theological Seminary is inaugurating a joint program with Marywood University in Scranton whereby students who wish to combine social-work theories with their ministries may complete a Master of Divinity and Master of Social Work in four years. Those who wish to combine social work practice with a pastoral counseling ministry may complete the Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling and Master of Social Work degrees in three years.

Social work courses are given by Marywood’s School of Social Work. All courses for the M.S.W. may be earned at Marywood’s branch program at DeSales University, Allentown. Field placements are selected to satisfy both institutions.

Marywood’s M.S.W. is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. Students who complete the joint program can be licensed in social work (LSW) or in clinical social work (LCSW) by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The license in clinical social work requires an additional 2,600 hours of supervised clinical work beyond the M.S.W. degree.

Faculty advisors for the joint degree are Cynthia J. Weaver, assistant professor of social work at Marywood, and Glenn Asquith Jr., professor of pastoral theology at Moravian.

A “signing ceremony” to acknowledge the beginning of the joint program was held at Moravian on September 26. Information on the program: Ext. 1516.
