The UNC School of Social Work’s Master of Social Work (MSW) program has been named one of the top 5 social work programs in the country, in the latest rankings by US News and World Report for the 2013 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools.”
The School’s rank rose from 8th in 2009 when the last social work program rankings were done, to tied for 5th in 2012, making it ranked the 3rd best public school of social work in the country.
“Being in the top five, in a rarefied air of excellent schools, is a testament to the quality and work of our faculty,” said Dean Jack Richman. “Their research, teaching and service is receiving national recognition. This is a fantastic accomplishment—especially in this time of budget cuts. The fine work and dedication of our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and our many friends and supporters, is the reason why we remain one of the best schools in the country.”
