Title IV-E Child Welfare Training Program
Unique to UC is the Title IV-E Child Welfare Training Program, offered in collaboration with other social work programs at public universities in Ohio. Students in this program have a specialized curriculum in the senior year and a field placement in an Ohio public child welfare agency. They learn the skills of working with families in distress to prevent and correct situations of abuse and neglect. Additional courses include SW6051 Child Welfare I and SW6052 Child Welfare II. An employment incentive payment is available for those students who graduate and accept employment in an Ohio child welfare agency.
Certificate in Service Learning in Spanish for Social Workers and Health Care Services
In September 2013, a collaborative effort between the School of Social Work and the Department of Romance Languages and Literature resulted in the development of a Certificate in Service Learning in Spanish for Social Workers and Health Care Services, allowing undergraduate social work students to expand their cultural competency and skills to be able to serve the often underserved Spanish-speaking population.
