Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

The program, in its' current form, is an unorganized mess. The advisors have no idea about course electives, curriculum requirements, or changes. Often course curriculum will change (it has three times since starting the program) and the advisor will make you change courses, even though you entered in a different catalog year. It takes the advisor weeks to get back to you and registration sometimes closes before you can get the information you need or permission to enter a course. Each of the professors have different and varying expectations. Some courses have little to no work in them, to the point you have no idea what you are paying for. Other courses, the material is non-existent and the professors have expectations for what you are supposed to know, but what is not taught by the program. The practicum placements are atrocious. The field coordinator cannot figure out where to place people and most people have to find a placement on their own. If they do not, then they will not be able to move forward in the program. This often leads students to take practicum placements that are not conducive to their career goals. Additionally, course grading is all over the place. During the middle of the program, the professors decided they started wanting an Abstract on every paper, however no one informed the students and the refused to change the grades or offer feedback. In the professional practice / counseling courses, the feedback made absolutely no sense, as if someone with schizophrenia wrote it. At this point, I have no idea what I am paying for. I'm not sure if other MSW programs are like this, but almost everything in this program is lacking. If you have other options, please go to another program.

Indiana University has an excellent MSW program. I would highly recommend it. The instructors are excellent, and the diversity of the students makes the learning in the classroom a rich and fulfilling experience. I am learning valuable information to help me in my career.

IUPUI is a great school in a great city. Indianapolis is a large city that has the feel of a small intimate town, the best of both worlds! The campus is easy to find your way around and (most) professors are really great about communicating with you if you have questions. The other great part is that if you are going into medicine, IUPUI shares a campus with Riley Hospital for Children and University Hospital with IU Health so you have direct access to learning in field.

Good social work program. Staff cared for students. Some of the adjunct professors weren't that good. I liked how there were specialties

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The program has strong instructors with in depth knowledge of the material who also provide valuable feedback. I am in the online program so this is very important to me as well as other students. The con is that since I am in an online program, I do not have as much access to the thoughts and input from fellow students. I do not consider this a con of the program, but a con of online programs in general, however, it is necessary for those of use who work full time and have families.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, I am really grateful for my experiences in the Master of Social Work program. Working and attending graduate school has been difficult as well as being in my practicum. I did not qualify for other financial assistance other than student loans; however, I believe this program is worth the time and effort that I have put into it. I know that the learning and experiences gained through this program will enhance my professional practice and service delivery.

I love that I can pursue a Master's Degree online, but still get to meet people at orientation. It give you the sense that you aren't doing this alone.
