Social Work program helps Sierra Leone

Fourah Bay College, part of the University of Sierra Leone System, began offering a Bachelor of Science degree in social work this year through its new Department of Social Work.

UT Arlington’s Africa Program and School of Social Work helped develop the program, with faculty members contributing to the curriculum and providing textbooks for students and faculty.

“There are pressing social challenges and needs in Sierra Leone,” says Alusine Jalloh, an associate professor of history and director of the Africa Program. “Until now there has been no academic training for social workers.”

Scott Ryan, dean of the School of Social Work and Jenkins Garrett Professor of Social Work, says the involvement of faculty members demonstrates their “strong commitment to the needs of our international neighbors.”
