News and Announcements

Malone now offers an AA to BA Program! Does someone in your agency have an Associate's Degree who is considering getting a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work? Please recommend this program, which makes them eligible to sit for the social work licensure exam. Classes are geared toward the working person's schedule.



Class of 2014 Social Workers Boast 100 percent pass rate 

On May 20, 2015, the Malone University Department of Social Work was notified that new graduates taking the licensure exam for counselor, social worker or marriage and family therapist have passed at a rate of 100 percent. In comparison, the national pass rate was 71 percent.

"Our students have worked hard and it was exciting to learn that their hard work has been successful," said Professor of Social Work Jane Hoyt-Oliver. "Our program is both rigorous and personal. We provide students with the opportunity to learn and demonstrate the competencies required for professional practice at the BA level. In addition, we work with our students individually to help each one achieve their goals. Through classroom learning and field experiences students are prepared to enter this demanding field. We are very proud of our graduates!"
