The eCurriculum Conponent is particularly useful for colleges that want to have a clone of the program listing on their websites. This component will pull the data from eCurriculum and display that information in the format desired.
This method is much more preferable compared to managing such data on the local sites, since this data will update as eCurriculum is updated. This way, all of the information is tored in one place and will remain concurrent with the official information available on eCurriculum.
The componet has 2 main options, to display a list of all programs in a certain college, choose Full college A-Z list in What to Display. This option will allow you to use the College dropdown to select which college to retrieve data from.
Alternatively, the Selection of Programs option allows you to put PASLA codes into the Programs to Display widget. If you put in only one PASLA code, it will bypass the listing and show only that program.
Chose any of these options to disable columns in the table. By Default the table output for the list includes the following:
Program Name (Cannot be removed)

The Master of Social Work (MSW) program prepares you for a career in advanced social work practice. The program is designed to promote the integration of learning in the classroom with learning in a field practicum in an agency setting. The School uses the concurrent model of field education (unpaid internship), meaning students take classes and have field education requirements concurrently.
Throughout the program, you will be assigned to an agency for 14 to 17 hours per work to work under the supervision of a qualified field instructor, who is a social worker employed at that agency. Typically, field placement hours must be scheduled sometime during the work week (i.e. Monday through Friday, 8am – 5pm); there are no field placements available with exclusively evening or weekend hours.
After completion of the foundation curriculum which includes a foundation year field placement, students choose to specialize in either Direct Practice or Social Welfare Administration and Macro Practice. These advanced year concentrations have specialized curricula and field placements.
The advanced curriculum in Direct Practice is designed to provide the knowledge and skills needed for specialized practice with Children and Families, in Mental Health, or in Health and Aging. Students in Direct Practice learn to use evidence-based interventions to assist individuals, families, and groups to make change, solve problems, and become empowered.
Students in the Social Welfare Administration and Macro Practice concentration acquire the skills for leadership in organizations and in working with communities to solve problems.
Social workers practice in many settings, working with people and communities to find solutions to problems. Fields where social workers provide direct service to individuals, families, and groups include:
Children and family services in child protective services, foster care agencies, adoptions, schools, and counseling agencies
Health services in hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, and nursing homes.
Mental health and substance abuse services in treatment and case management agencies and private practice.
Aging service in home care agencies and senior centers.
Legal services in correctional facilities, treatment agencies, and mediation services.
Other social workers work with community members to improve conditions in their area. Still others work in leadership roles in social service organizations.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics social work and health care administration are occupations expected to grow “faster than average” in the coming years. Job prospects in these fields are considered excellent.
