Letters of Recommendation

About Letters of Recommendation

Letters of recommendation should attest to academic ability, nature and quality of past work performance, commitment to social work values, and capacity for scholarly contribution. You must list the people writing references for you in the application system along with their email addresses. The application system will then send the recommenders an email with instructions on uploading their letters to the system. "Guide for Letters of Recommendation".

Whom do you ask?

You should ask people who are able to comment on one or more of the following areas:

  • Your professional experience and performance
  • Your intellectual, conceptual, and analytic abilities
  • Your interest in, aptitude for, commitment to, and (if applicable) experience with social work research
  • Your commitment to social work values

At least two of the three letters of recommendation should be about your past academic work; the other letter may be from someone with whom you have worked, either in social work, human services, or a related field. All should use the appropriate form. If you have been a paid social worker in the last two years, at least one of the three letters should come from your supervisor or director where you are currently working.

PLEASE INFORM THOSE WRITING LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION THAT IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THEY REACH US BY JAN. 2ND, OR EARLIER.
