INTERESTED IN PURSUING GRADUATE STUDIES INVOLVING DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING INDIVIDUALS???

 There is a 'Deaf and Hard of Hearing' certificate sub-specialty in the Masters of Social Work (MSW) program at East Carolina University (ECU)! The implementation of this program was a result of a collaboration effort between the ECU School of Social Work and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Mental Health, Development
Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services.

This unique program will prepare social work graduate students to work and communicate more effectively with
Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals. Students who enroll in this program must possess at least intermediate ASL skills and a basic knowledge in Deaf culture.

Scholarships are available each year for students who pursue the MSW degree with the 'Deaf and Hard of Hearing' certificate. Scholarships include in-state tuition and fees for a year and a monthly stipend. Students who receive scholarships supported by state funding are expected to work in North Carolina after completing the program.  Internships through
this program will involve doing therapy, case management and advocacy with Deaf and Hard of Hearing clients in mental health and substance abuse facilities.

 The application deadline for Advanced Standing applicants is 1/15/01.  The deadline for other applicants is 2/1/01.  Advanced standing applicants who are admitted will begin in May 2001 while others begin in August 2001.

Interested candidates, please contact ECU School of Social Work,
