The agreement allows graduates of Northcentral's two-year human services programs to transfer smoothly to the four-year Bachelor of Social Work degree program at UW-Superior.
"They have this wonderful opportunity to come fairly seamlessly into our program," said Dr. Monica Roth Day, coordinator of the social work program at UW-Superior. "Human services managers are telling us there's a need for more skilled social workers."
The number of jobs requiring a bachelor's degree in social work is expected to grow 25 percent by 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, compared to an average 14.3 percent growth rate for all U.S. jobs.
"We are excited for this partnership, which will provide for additional educational advancement for our learners," said Tammy Gorski, human services faculty member at Northcentral.
Without formal agreements, higher education institutions must closely examine each incoming student's course record on a case-by-case basis before granting transfer credits.
UW-Superior has the only Bachelor of Social Work degree program in northern Wisconsin and is the first UW-System school to sign an articulation agreement with Northcentral.
