Degree: Social Work

I overall have had the most amazing experience in my Undergraduate Bachelor's Degree in Social Work at Arizona State. The teachers within the program are extremely experienced, as well as happy to help. This was extremely encouraging as a freshman student beginning to study the social work field. I have now decided to go back and pursue my master's degree in Social Work as well, because of the way that the programs are run and handled.
I definitely recommend this school.

I enjoyed my time at ASU School of Social Work. The campus was a satelite campus so it was a small community of students. The instructors were mostly well educated and supportive. The one main criticism of the program would be some overlap in classes leading to repetition in core classes that was frustrating. The academic advisors at the college itself were terrible, all three that were employed in the 2 years I was there. The advisors at the main campus were great, and the chair of the department...

I have not yet graduated from my school. I work in the social work field currently and there are a great number of people who are in college, the majority divided between ASU and GCU. What I like about ASU is that it requires in person classes to complete the BSW program. I firmly believe that one gets more out of a classroom setting and though I have appreciated on line courses for convenience as I have to work full time, I think that in the field of social work it is vital to acknowledge and interact...

Degree: Social Work

Since grade school I envisioned gaining higher education. It was a topic that was lightly introduced to children but teachers would not spend much time exploring educational paths with students. I attended a public school in a low income community. Coming from a family with no college background, my parents expected their children to take advantage of the education opportunities. And her I am as an ASU graduate student pursuing my graduate degree. The experience at ASU has remained similarly between... Read More

My experience at Arizona State University was better than I expected. I completed my bachelor's degree in social work which was located in the downtown campus. I loved that the classes were smaller and I could really get to know my classmates and instructors. I felt that ASU was always making sure we had everything we needed by giving us a call or emailing us. I felt that ASU really wanted us to succeed.

Arizona State University provides a unique program, Child Welfare Scholar program that is partner with the Department of Child Safety. I am a scholar of that program and can truly say I have learned a tremendous amount about the career I was pursuing. The staff in the university is amazing and very welcoming. I have gained valuable experience and social networking with being part of ASU but mostly importantly of this unique program ASU provides to social work majors.

Degree: Social Work

I graduated in 2010 with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree. My concentrations were Social Work and Religious Studies. Although the instruction in the online IDS classes was good I graduated with few job prospects. I really have no one to blame but myself. I was interested in Social Work but did not want to go the traditional route. Believing that IDS would offer an expanded breadth of knowledge that would make me a more attractive hire to the Social Service providers I was interested in I went... Read More

My recommendation is this: do your homework if you don't know exactly what job your degree will qualify you for; do not assume that it will qualify you for anything. Part of the issue was cuts, to federal funding, which fund most of the social service programs. These cuts took place during my 3rd and 4th year of school, which greatly decreased the number of social service jobs available and lowered the pay for those jobs.
