UK Center of Excellence in Rural Health and UK College of Social Work partnered to offer BASW and MSW degrees close to home! This partnership provides exceptional resources for student success including advanced technology, contemporary student study areas, and on-site student services. Every effort has been made to identify local community resources and agencies, as well as to provide the best educational opportunity for you, the student. The Center’s academic offerings are focused on curbing health professions shortages in rural Kentucky. Long-term tracking of the Center’s graduates indicate approximately 80% of the graduates work in rural communities. All of our faculty, experience, and resources are made available to every student—regardless of where the class meets. Our programs are geared toward non-traditional students who are employed full time and need a student-friendly educational program.
