Carolina Child Welfare Education Collaborative
Methodist University is a participating partner of the North Carolina Child Welfare Education Collaborative. As the first private university to be admitted, the Child Welfare Course is designed to provide practice knowledge and skills for students preparing for positions in public Child Welfare and other child serving organizations.
Students who have been admitted to the Social Work major are eligible to take the course and apply as a Child Welfare Scholar for the Collaborative funding. Students are eligible for all aspects of Child Welfare employment after the course and a field Internship in Child Welfare. BSW students planning to do their four hundred (400) hour field Internship in a Public Child Welfare field placement in a North Carolina County Department of Social Services must complete the course and receive a minimum grade of "B". Additionally, Field Internship in a Public Child Welfare Agency (NCDSS) requires a GPA of 2.5 overall and a 3.0 in the major.
