The School provides a great combination of academic excellence and commitment to social justice within a vibrant and friendly atmosphere. U.S. News & World Report ranks the school’s master’s degree program 38th among 217 advanced social work degree programs in the country. College Factual ranks the school’s baccalaureate program No. 13 out of 335 BSW programs nationwide.

The school offers four degrees: Bachelor of Social Work, Master of Social Work, Master of Arts in Nonprofit Management and Leadership , and Doctor of Philosophy. The School also offers master’s level dual degrees in law, public health and divinity. The School’s funded research and study opportunities inform public policy both regionally and nationally. The doctoral program prepares social work professionals for careers in academic research settings and for practice in program evaluation and other forms of scientific research in the public and private sectors.

The School counts among its recent successes a stellar reaccreditation by the Council on Social Work Education for the BSW and MSW programs through 2019, a high percentage of MSW graduates who score well above the national average on social work licensure exams and BSW graduates who complete their degrees with Latin honors, the endowment of two professorships as well as a School endowment that has more than tripled over the last decade, and creation of the interdisciplinary Center for Social Justice, Human and Civil Rights.
