Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

For the most part this graduate program was really great but there was a huge divide in the level of education recieved from different professors. All were really well educated but not all should have been teaching. There seems to be a lack of clarity between many of the professors and staff as to what is being taught and what should be taught. Because of this you really have to work to get the education you want. Overall, it is an okay program and is a great price for a graduate program.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2012

The U gave me a chance to learn more about myself and what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. The professors were willing to work with you to handle problems, both at the graduate level and the under grad level.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Adult-Gerontology Acute Care)
Graduation Year: 2019

The University of Utah is renowned for their high quality of and innovation with their education. They're on the forefront of providing students with quality education, and as new track options come up they work to competitively offer the new tracks as well, which is the case with the Acute Care Nurse Practitioner track. It's one of the newer Nurse Practitioner tracks and at some point to work in a hospital, it will be required to have your Acute Care NP. They're also the first in the state to offer the a nurse practitioner degrees that are doctorate prepared versus masters prepared.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The MSW program at the University of Utah has been an incredible experience. The professors are aiming for your success and never set you up for failure. You build bonds with both professors and other students to get a wide range of perspective and knowledge from everyone around you. The way professors want you to be successful is something I had not experienced before in other programs.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2028

Really great program! Professors are awesome and have great experience in the field. This is an essay writing major. There are many 7-9 pg papers throughout and no tests. The more experience you can get/have in the field the easier time you will have.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

In my experience, Utah can be polarized by those who are conservative and/or of the predominate religion and those who are liberal and/or hate religion. The U of U tends to attract the latter population. As a fairly conservative person, I was extremely nervous to attend the U of U's MSW program. I was afraid that the professors, students, and curriculum may be so liberal that it was close minded. I had heard such complaints from friends who had gone through the program before me. There were some faculty adjustments made recently and my experience has been amazing. I feel like the population of students is quite diverse (for Utah) with a lot of different backgrounds. I have been impressed with the professors and their ability to see multiple sides of a situation and teach in a relatively unbiased manner. Ultimately, I've really enjoyed my time in the program, the coursework and the cohort. It's a fairly easy program, in my opinion, as much of the information is subjective. I also think it's affordable. The only problem that I've run into is in trying to place my practicum in the summer. It does not work smoothly with the coursework for the macro course because the coursework is supposed to be congruent with the practicum. I also know that the part time students have had problems with the faculty. It sounds like they have options that accommodate a variety of different students, but it's not really a smooth process. I'd recommend this program. I'd go through this program again.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I just completed my first semester towards my masters in social work. Honestly, I did chose the University of Utah because of the convince of being near home and the cost. The course work in the program will challenge you to understand how you learn best, while also having you reflect on who you are. Keep in my that the curriculum of this program is extremely fluid, each teacher has their own way of teaching the material and you will get out of the classes what you put in. All of the professors that I have had have encouraged me to look at myself, my interests and what I see myself doing in the future. They have all been available to meet outside class if you have any questions that arise or a problem that you need to discuss. The process of selecting a practicum at the U is an easy process. My practicum coordinator was honest about all of the placements I was considering and challenged me to assess what I would need out of a placement. I have found that through this experience it is extremely important to have a strong supervisors for your practicum. Having a strong supervisor will allow you as a student to feel supported as you move through working with your first clients, learning new things, and working towards your degree. Your supervisors and other clinicians are your practicum are the people that you will be learning the most from. This experience helps you become the best social worker you can be. I believe that the University of Utah helped me to sort through various challenges with my practicum and helped me to find a placement that met my needs as a student.
