2013-14 Academic Year Sees Record Number of Social Work Majors

The social work program announced today that the number of majors to the program broke an all-time record at Ashland University. Fifty-seven (57) students are now declared majors for the professional degree. This exceeded the previous high number of 49 majors reported in 2007 and 2008. If current trends continue there should be over 60 majors next year. A record number of prospective freshman have declared social work as their major for next year, which should exceed the number of graduating seniors (12) this year. The graph below shows the trend in the number of students majoring in social work since 1999 (from the Office of Institutional Research).
