Gilberto Maldonado

I am a third-year online student in the Master of Science in Social Work program at the Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville. I am also an 18-year veteran of the U.S. Army. As I prepare my transition from a full-time military career to a career in Social Work, I find that the online graduate program at Kent School affords me a unique opportunity to obtain a high quality education while I continue to serve.

I have found the MSSW curriculum to be challenging and motivating, instructive and even inspirational at that same time. The program has allowed me to explore and improve my communication skills, which I anticipate will be paramount to my success as a social worker. The staff and faculty have been supportive and understanding of my need for flexibility and have gone above and beyond my expectations all throughout the enrollment process and leading to my practicum placement.

For me and my family, the MSSW online program at the Kent School has proven to be the most valuable resource for a bright and successful future.
