Silberman at Hunter, is a great school if you are looking for a clinical heavy social work foundation with real hands-on experience, for an affordable cost. The school has other Social Work sub-fields but is very clinical focused, slowly expanding into the community organizing and Administrative aspects of Social Work. The school also teaches you the importance of advocacy (inclduing self advocacy). The tenured professors are really experts in their respective fields and can provide a range of knowledge outside the literature.

It was a great value for the money. A lot of my social work professors at NYU and Columbia had gone to Hunter.

The Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College has a strong tradition and reputation for social justice advocacy and social work in New York City. The program is divided into three methods (Clinical, Community Organizing, and Organizational Management & Leadership) Classes are then arranged by particular fields of practice or areas of social work like (immigration, child welfare, aging, etc.) offering a well balanced education that has you prepared to enter the field of social work. Adjusting to work at the graduate level has it's challenges, but everyone (faculty, staff, fellow students, and deans) is accessible and available to help you get the most out of your education.

I found Hunter College School of Social Work, know known as the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, to be a great environment for learning. There were amazing and knowledgeable professors who ensured that I received a quality education. The school also did a great job in admitting intelligent and thoughtful students - many of whom are currently my closet friends. I truly felt prepared to enter the social work profession following my graduation!

Hunter College's Silberman School for Social Work is the place to be for future social workers! I've never experienced such an incredible, rich, and diverse campus with welcoming classmates and teachers in which you strive to be one day. You get to experience intimate relationships and long lasting connections through small classrooms and a required field placement. There wasn't one second I felt out of place in this environment, between the numerous on-campus clubs or activities. With remarkably low prices, I still find it hard to believe I get to experience all of this. It's definitely an opportunity no one should miss!

Graduation Year: 2017

Silberman School of Social Work of Hunter College teaches social work from an anti-oppressive lens. While the curriculum still can use adjustments to truly encompass this, overall the cost of the program can't be beat if you're committed to social justice and progressive work. East Harlem is a great setting for this type of program but more community relations and involvement should be incorporated into campus life and social networking.

I am really enjoying my experience at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. The professors definitely push you, but it's definitely for your benefit. The atmosphere of East Harlem definitely adds to the appeal of the school. The area is very safe and I feel comfortable walking by myself during the day or night. The quality of education you receive here is excellent.
