The Board of Governors for the UNC System today approved the establishment of a Joint PhD in Social Work between UNC Greensboro and North Carolina Agricultural & Technical University.
The Social Work PhD program, which has been in development for the past seven years, meets an unmet need in North Carolina. Until today, the only PhD in the NC system (or the state) was at UNC Chapel Hill.
The program is unique in the United States; it’s the only joint Social Work PhD between a historically black college or university (HBCU), and a historically white institution. It is one of only six PhD programs in Social Work at HBCUs.
