“Traveling abroad for our service trip to Guyana, softened my heart. Being able to take a lot in, and deal with a lot of heaviness on this trip has helped me to understand people, and why people commit crime—sometimes because it’s a last resort to be able to eat. Understanding diversity, and being empathetic will be extremely helpful in my career in law enforcement.”
Georgian Court University and Cumberland County College are excited to announce a partnership for the Associate to Bachelor degree in Social Work. Through this partnership, you can earn your BSW from Georgian Court University on the Cumberland County College campus. The partnership is expected to begin its first cohort in fall 2017, pending interest from you.
GCU is a transfer-friendly institution. Through this partnership, GCU will accept the credits directly from Cumberland County College according to the Articulation Agreement for the AS Social Service and the AS Social Service/Gerontology programs. If you complete all of the required courses listed in the Articulation Agreement through Cumberland County College, you will have already completed at least 61 credits towards your BSW. You can complete additional credits at Cumberland County College to achieve the 72 total credits needed for the degree that are not offered by GCU at Cumberland County College. Please reference the Degree Articulation, found in the University Center on the Cumberland County College campus for the required courses you must take at Cumberland County College.
This program is designed for full-time students, and is comprised of the following course sequence. To remain in the program and graduate on time, you must take the following classes in the semester designated. If you fall out of the sequence, you may be able to make up the course at the Georgian Court University Lakewood campus and then return to the Cumberland County College campus and enter the next cohort.
