Where am I?

Social Work

Fontbonne University’s department of social work, new in 2010, offers a variety of avenues for students to earn a degree in the field. The university’s new bachelor’s in social work (BSW) was developed using the very latest methods, theory and information available. And Fontbonne social work students can earn advance standing, reducing their time at any accredited graduate-level social work program. In fact, 92 percent of our Bachelor of Social Work students go on to graduate school in social work, obtaining their MSW in 15 months or less.

Tamitha Price Awarded Excellence in Teaching

Tamitha Price, part-time adjunct professor in the department of social work, received Fontbonne's Excellence in Teaching Award for Part-time Faculty.

In addition to being an adjunct, Price is the executive director for the Missouri chapter of the National Association of Social Work. She started teaching at Fontbonne when Sharon Jackson, now head of the university’s social work program, consulted with her about creating the social work major.

“I’m very grateful that Fontbonne has developed such a strong social work program,” Price said. “Because of that, our students will do so much good in our community. I’m honored to be even one small piece of that pie.”
