Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Hello All. Currently, I am enrolled in at the University of Georgia's Master's of Social Work program. I attend the Gwinett campus which is significantly more diverse (e.g., ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, professional background, disability) than the main Athens campus. The thing I love the most about the Social Work program at the University of Georgia (Gwinett Campus) is the emphasis put on the students becoming healthy practitioners/social worker by helping us to develop our own self awareness so that our personal biases do not interfere with the services we will provide to our future Clients. The professors I have encourage are genuinely passionate about social justice and their students. I currently work as a Substance Abuse counselor in training and through this program I have been able to become a better skilled and healthier provider for the people I counsel.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The MSW program at UGA is a great program. I had a smooth transition from undergrad to grad school and the work does not seem to be particularly difficult for me. However, the social work field as a whole seems to be lacking in diversity and curriculum surrounding race/ethnicity and intersectionality with respect to the aforementioned. This program is also good because you have two field placements. One the spring semester of your first year and the other one the entire second year. I would recommend it for people who are interested in clinical work moreso than community.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

The best thing about the University of Georgia is the flexibility allowed to graduate students when selecting the courses to take. Students take courses that are beneficial to them! Also, the faculty are friendly and I had a close relationship with the faculty in majority of my classes. It's a two way interaction between student and faculty. Athens is a great student town and new students will have plenty of places to visit and have fun. Seriously, join UGA.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Industrial Organizational Masters Program at the University of Georgia is the best educational experience I have had thus far. The program is challenging but extremely rewarding. The topics covered apply to real world issues and has given me the knowledge and skills to assist my current organization with a number of projects! Working as a team with my cohort as well as previous cohorts has opened up many opportunities for networking and relevant field experience since joining the program. The professors are the top in their field of study and provide overwhelming support and direction. This has truly been a life changing experience!

Degree: Executive MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

University of Georgia provides a great way to earn your degree while working full time. The professors are incredibly flexible and passionate about their fields. Their campus is also conveniently located in central Atlanta. Coming from a business degree, everything has been a review thus far but there's hope that the curriculum gets harder.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

UGA is an excellent school in the Southern states of the United States. It has a wealth of Professors with private practice, judicial and law clerkship experience. There is a hybrid of law, business, ethics in the nature of instructions by the Professors. UGA is also affordable compared to other law schools in the United States. The rankings are high and there are a lot of tuition and financial aids which a student can apply to.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Excellent program. Professors truly passionate about subject matter and willing to assist students in figuring out interests. Wide variety of classes but a stronger emphasis placed on clinical track as opposed to macro focused study. Professors are available and willing to help.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Georgia provided significant opportunities to get hands-on experience. The only drawback of The curriculum in the public health program is that not much exists to facilitate professional development.
