Johnson C. Smith will soon be offering its first master's degree. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges approved the university to begin offering its first graduate program in social work in fall 2014.

  "This is a historic period at Johnson C. Smith University as we move from a bachelor-degree-granting institution to one that offers an even higher level of education," said Ronald L. Carter, president. "Our Master of Social Work is designed to meet the needs of our students and the community at large, fulfilling our mission as a new urban university."

A site visit by SACSCOC will be conducted within six months of the program's initiation to determine the university's continued compliance with the Principles of Accreditation. The SACSCOC Board of Trustees will then take action on the accreditation status of the institution at a new degree level.
            In addition, the university is expected to receive candidacy status from the Council on Social Work (CSWE) in February. This is the initial step that enables the university to begin offering courses and admitting students. The final step, or initial accreditation for the MSW program, will occur in 2015 following a site visit by CSWE.
