Springfield College School of Social Work Information Table

The Springfield College School of Social Work prepares students for practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities in a variety of areas such as adult mental health, child welfare/child mental health, school social work and gerontology and for direct practice, supervision, administration and public policy-making activities. Since 1989, the master of social work program has been continuously accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Participants have many choices for field internship assignments at agencies throughout New England and New York. The field education program is structured around four areas of learning to ensure students gain experience in developing a full range of advanced generalist social work skills, including direct service with individuals, group work, community development and organization and administration and organizational development.

Want to learn more about program options and how to successfully apply for graduate admission? Stop by this information table to speak with admissions coordinator Franklin Kirschner!

"Nuclear Politics: The Strategic Causes of Proliferation"

When do states like North Korea acquire nuclear weapons? What can counter-proliferators such as the U.S. really do to stop them? Professor Nuno Monteiro’s latest book, with Professor Alexandre Debs, leverages powerful theory and extensive historical research to analyze the impact of security concerns on the nuclear trajectory of 16 countries to gain insights on these timeless puzzles.

Nuno P. Monteiro is director of International Security Studies and associate professor of political science at Yale University. Dr. Monteiro’s research focuses on international relations theory and security studies. He is the author of Theory of Unipolar Politics and Nuclear Politics: The Strategic Causes of Proliferation (with Alexandre Debs), published by Cambridge University Press in 2014 and 2017, respectively. His work has been printed in the Annual Review of Political Science, Critical Review, International Organization, International Security, International Theory and Perspectives on Politics; and his commentary has appeared in numerous outlets, including The Guardian, Foreign Affairs, The National Interest and Project Syndicate.

This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Stanton Foundation and the Department of Political Science at Amherst College.

Kunié Sugiura will give this annual lecture at Amherst this spring. She was born in Nagoya, Japan. After graduating from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1967, she went to New York with two classmates and since then has been working and living there. As she herself states, “From the beginning I thought of photography as important [a] media as painting and sculpture. [I make] artworks using [the] concepts and process of photography.”

Her major exhibitions include:
Vision and Expression, Eastman Museum (1969)
Annual Exhibition of Painting, Whitney Museum (1972)
New Photography 13, MOMA, NY (1997)

The Rapaport Lectureship in Contemporary Art Fund, established in 1999 at Amherst College, provides support for an annual lecture by an artist, art writer or art critic on some aspect of contemporary art. The goal of the Rapaport Lectureship is to increase awareness and appreciation of contemporary art among students and the community. The lecture is free and open to the public.
