The Department of Social Work’s graduate program is celebrating a milestone in the U.S. News & World Report rankings. This is the first year the MSW program was eligible to be considered for ranking by its national peers.

To determine the current rankings, U.S. News & World Report surveyed 298 social work programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Social Work Education. The rankings are based solely on peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators, and/ or faculty at accredited degree programs. The department received a score of 3.2 out of 5.

The Department of Social Work debuted at No. 51 out of 298 social work programs in the 2023 Best Graduate Schools report. This achievement places the MSW program among the top 20% of social work programs in the nation and reflects the hard work and commitment of our students, faculty, and staff.
