Part Time Alternative Program, Graduate Social Work Education in Texas: Nibblers at the Feast of Learning.
Pittman-Munke, Peggy
A study was made of the way part-time students are served by the four graduate schools of social work in Texas: University of Texas in Austin (UT), University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), University of Houston, and the Worden School of Social Service of Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU). Each school offers at least one type of part-time program, but while the University of Houston has only the part-time, on-campus model, each of the other three schools has satellite model programs also. Both UT and UTA utilize other colleges as their off-campus instructional sites, and OLLU utilizes training facilities. The number of students admitted each year ranges from a low of about 15 students (OLLU) to a high of about 30 students at UT's off-site program. All three schools have the same admissions criteria for both programs. However, both OLLU and UTA require a period of residence on the main campus that ranges from 15 weeks at OLLU to 32 weeks for UTA students. The UT program is completely off-site, with no Austin residence requirements. Information was also obtained on: the academic rank of faculty involved in off-site, part-time master's of social work programs; academic advising for students; course sequencing by semester; field placements; and grading systems.
