A Survey of Student Interest in a First Year Master of Social Work Program for the Greater Rockford, Illinois Area. Final Report.
Illinois Univ., Dixon. Regional Office for Continuing Education and Public Service.
A mailed questionnaire was utilized to survey social service agency personnel in the Rockford, Illinois area about their interest in and need for a first year Master of Social Work extension program. The questionnaire was sent to social service agency personnel holding at least a bachelor's degree and performing or administering social services; the individuals were identified through agency liaison persons. Total response was 196 of 244, or 80 percent. The findings of the needs assessment research, contained in the brief document, offer apparent evidence of the need to develop a first year graduate program for the area. The findings clearly indicate that the personnel surveyed would participate in such a program. They are appropriately qualified in terms of professional experience and grade point averages. Their preference is to take evening courses; a majority, in fact, would enroll in two courses per quarter. On the whole, they would finance this education by themselves. The findings were submitted to the Jane Addams School of Social Work at Chicago Circle Campus (University of Illinois) with intentions of continuing the effort toward program delivery. (Author/AJ)
