Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I enjoyed all of the opportunities that Alabama A&M University provided me in the graduate social work program. As a student, I was able to learn many techniques for the social work profession such as assessments while in classes. While working in the field as an intern I gained valuable experience that assisted me gaining practical knowledge in the social work profession. The graduate social work program was also able to provide me with a scholarship that greatly helped me in paying for classes. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone interested in pursuing their social work degree.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

When I graduated in 2012 with a BS in Organizational Management, I was married, a mother of five children, and grandmother to six grandchildren. However, my friend encouraged me to look into the MSW program at AAMU, and I applied before I left the USA on vacation. I was accepted, matriculated and graduated on time in 2014. It was challenging, but rewarding, and my teachers were exceptional because they were knowledgeable as well as caring and kind to the students. I had a wonderful experience! I recommend the MSW program at AAMU without hesitation, and I will continue to recruit students to attend AAMU for the MSW program. The faculty at AAMU rocks! Go Bulldogs!

Degree: MSW
Graduation Year: 2018

I attended an online graduate program for social work and was very pleased with my experience and the knowledge I gained. I was able to make connections with fellow students who have become sources of motivation and help in my daily career. I also had the opportunity to complete an internship that led into a job and gave me a good look at what being a social worker was all about.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Alabama A&M Universitys MSW program prepares its students for life after college. The department has some of the best professors on campus, such as Dr. Perry-Mitchell, Dr. Plummer, Professor Clayborn and Dr. McElderry genuinely care for their students and go above and beyond to make sure that you excell.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2012

Alabama A&M provided me with the training to be a effective Social Worker and the academic skills to complete my PhD program. They offer a master's thesis option which trained me in research and academic writing. I'm currently a postdoctoral researcher at an Ivy League university and A&M helped make that possible!

Degree: MSW
Graduation Year: 2016

Alabama A &M's MSW program gave me the skills and training necessary to be an effective practitioner in the field of social work. Time and time again I go back to the tools and the theories learned in the program at A&M and find practical application in my work. In this MSW program, you have to be mature enough and driven enough to make use of every opportunity (i.e., term papers, readings, group assignments and projects) to prepare yourself for working in the noble field of social work. You won't be spoon-fed. It's up to you to seize every wonderful educational and training opportunity that will be provided for you. I work with people every day who received their MSW from UT Knoxville, Villanova, UT Nashville, and the University of Alabama. I know from my own experience that you will be just as prepared and in many cases more prepared by the program at Alabama A&M.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2012

Alabama A & M was a very positive experience. All faculty in the graduate social work department were readily available to assist in any way possible and provided excellence in the classroom. Once graduated, I was fully prepared to take and pass the licensure exam immediately as a result of the hands on teaching I received. The student body is high achieving and very supportive of one another in their academic and personal growth. I highly recommend this university to others. Faculty also assists you in preparing resumes to ensure excellent job opportunities.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2008

Alabama A&M equipped me with the real world skills to face the often times challenging field of social work. Learning to question ethical dilemmas, to think critically and to understand the injustice that exists within our world have been incredibly valuable in helping me to succeed in the field.
