Diploma Program in Social Work
The Diploma in Social work is a two-year, 60-credit hour program designed to offer basic but up-to-date theoretical knowledge with relevant skills and competencies in social work. The program focuses on pairing theoretical explanations with practical work in the form of realistic scenarios and research projects. In addition, the program follows a modern liberal arts approach by exposing the students to a sound knowledge of general sciences, the arts, study of the Omani culture, mastery of general computing skills, and efficient usage of Arabic and English languages.
The students who graduate with a Diploma may continue their education at a later stage and receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in social work, if they satisfy the requirements of admission to the B.A. in Social Work. All the credits that they have successfully completed in the Diploma program are transferable to the B.A. program in Social Work.
