BRISTOL, Tenn., April 20, 2016 – Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center (SVHEC)
in Abingdon, Va., will be the site of an upcoming information session on King University’s
Graduate, Professional, and Online Studies (GPS) degree options for adult learners.
The event will take place on Monday, April 25 at SVHEC’s room 103 from 11 a.m. to
1 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m.
King is making it easier for working adults throughout East Tennessee and Southwest
Virginia in their quest to obtain a college degree. The sessions, conducted by King
University enrollment counselors, will provide information on how you can complete
your major coursework through King’s GPS program in as little as 16 months.
“Extending one’s education to include a bachelor’s or master’s degree provides increased
career opportunities, whether a student is seeking to advance his or her career or
they are transitioning from their current area of expertise into a new one,” said
Mona Salyer, assistant vice president for Enrollment Management Graduate and Professional
Studies Tri-Cities. “We are excited to offer, for the first time, the Bachelor of
Social Work (BSW) in a convenient, working adult format for fall 2016. The program
is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.”
The BSW program provides graduates with a foundation grounded in research, theory,
and practice and is enhanced by an in-depth examination and reflection of the complexities
of the human condition. Social workers help individuals, families, communities, and
organizations. The King BSW program supplies you with the tools and training to help.
The program incorporates an extensive supervised professional fieldwork experience
in relevant social work settings.
Those attending will have the opportunity to learn about financial aid options and
receive a free transcript assessment. They will also be able to meet with King faculty
and enrollment counselors. Representatives will also be available to discuss program
options available through SVHEC including the Bachelor of Social Work, new for fall
2016, Master of Nursing Family Nurse Practitioner, and Bachelor of Science in Nursing
for Registered Nurses.
