Beginning in the Fall of 2014, ACU will offer two new graduate programs through ACU at CitySquare in Dallas: a Master of Marriage and Family Therapy with an emphasis in Medical Family Therapy and a one-year post-baccalaureate Internship in Dietetic Nutrition.
ACU at CitySquare equips students to live incarnationally as the hands and feet of Jesus in the world’s most vulnerable places.
A hand-picked group of 15 freshmen from the 135 Honors students were chosen to be a part of an urban and justice studies team. All are pursuing an interdisciplinary degree.
ACU has launched a partnership with Dallas nonprofit CitySquare that will provide ACU students with a hands-on learning experience and the opportunity to use their talents to fight poverty.
“The knowledge I’ve obtained and the skills I’ve learned go beyond a classroom. I now feel more prepared for the professional world of social work than I ever did before.”
Graduate students Liz Savoy and Christin King are ACU’s first two students to complete their master of science in social work degrees onsite at CitySquare, a nonprofit organization that aims to fight the causes of poverty in Dallas by offering food, medicine, housing and counseling to those in need.
