Monmouth University School of Social Work Ranked As One of the Best By U.S.News & World Report

Monmouth University School of Social Work’s Master of Social Work (MSW) program is ranked as one of the best programs by the 2012 U.S.News & World Report’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools.” The MSW program has been ranked 60 among 206 social work graduate programs nationwide. In the previous report published in 2008, Monmouth’s program was ranked 82. Rankings are based on surveys of experts in the field of social work education.

“We are very pleased that the School was recognized as one of the best programs in the nation. It is a testament to the excellent work of our faculty, staff, administration as well as our students and alumni,” said Dean Robin Mama.

The primary mission of the MSW Program at Monmouth University is to prepare graduates for advanced social work practice. The MSW Program currently offers two tracks, one in practice with families and children, and the second in international and community development practice.  Monmouth is one of the few universities in the nation to offer an international and community development track in the MSW program.

Social work program rankings are based on peer assessment surveys sent to deans and directors, and to other top administrators or faculty at accredited MSW degree programs.
