Grad School Choice Num. 3

My third choice would be  Clark Atlanta University. I first must say, I'm not sure if I could see myself living in GA except for the "heat." I know it's probably not a good reason to move to another state. I really don't like the cold and New York is cold. But I do have family in GA and maybe moving there want be bad. I did look at there social work program and it seem to be okay. They offer Child and Family, which is an area of social work I want to go into. After reading there Program Goals, it seem to to be a possibility of a college to g to.

To be honest the only reason that would play into rather I apply to this school is because it is a "all Black school". I have never been to an all Black school in my time on this earth. I have always went to schools that were VERY diverse. Even the college I go to now is diverse and I love it that way. I just know that the world is diverse and I want to be around by all types of people not just whites or just blacks. But I do plan on visiting this school too when I visit my family in GA. I hope that I will enjoy my time there. Who knows maybe I would want to go there.


  1. There is much to say for diversity--for one thing it's better preparation for the "real" world I think. But there is also an advantage to being near family. I haven't been to Atlanta in many years (other than the airport), but I've heard the traffic is really bad, which may or may not affect you. I think in general the weather in Atlanta is pretty good--the hottest times would probably be July and August, when you might not be going to classes.
    Good luck in your decision.

  2. Thanks for this...Yea I think diversity is what I rather be around.

  3. Hey there! I am so glad to drop by and to have an additional knowledge about this topic through your blog. Keep it up! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge about social work. You have such a very interesting and informative page. I am looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
    In addition to that, based on what I have read online, Professional social workers are generally considered those who hold a degree. Often these practitioners must also obtain a license or be professionally registered.
    Social Work in MA is the profession that provides the greatest amount of care for people seeking mental health care. Since being licensed for independent practice over 30 years ago, social work has dominated the professional landscape in MA (in private practice, hospitals and clinics) and social workers are particularly well known (but not limited to) for their work with couples and families. Social workers operate from a framework known as the “person-in-the-environment”. This refers to the fact that in treatment, social workers take the patient’s “context” into account, in general, more than other independently licensed professions.
