Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2022

This social work program has what pretty much amounts to open admissions. Students were unprepared. Not worth the price tag. I attended against my better judgement because I wanted to go back to school. Classes were full of MSW students and people who didnt work.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

One of the best things WSSW has to offer is their helpful, experienced, and well-connected faculty. Every professor I have encountered has been passionate about social work, social justice, and educating the future of the profession. They are all filled with endless knowledge and experience and are enthused at any opportunity to impart that knowledge to their students. Their guidance has helped me navigate educational and career opportunities in more ways than I can ever express.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2009

The Wurzweiler School of Social Work's block program is very intense but very rewarding. Being able to complete all of your courses in less time is definitely an advantage; especially while learning valuable and useful lessons in the field of Social Work.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I find only some of the professors at Yeshiva to be available for students to contact via email for questions. I find people in the financial office never respond to emails and many people in administrative roles are very rude while speaking with students. I have really enjoyed getting to know my classmates and have had a couple of professors who i greatly admire and plan on keeping in touch with over the years.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that the pros of my graduate program are the teachers and academic advisors. The teachers and academic advisors are very personable and are there to help the students in the present and the future. I have taken a different teacher for every class thus far and have enjoyed each one and the unique style that they bring as educators. My academic advisors have been very supportive in helping me gain what I want to achieve out of the program. I feel that the cons of the graduate program is the school's inability to connect its students with each other. The school doesn't host many interesting social events that would potentially create an improved sense of student community and support. I also feel that the administration at my graduate program is inefficient and often last minute in their communication to the students on very important information.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that one of the pros of my graduate program are the classroom and student environment. My class sizes are very small, the teachers care for the students, and the student body is diverse. Professors do an excellent job of preparing students for the realities of the social work profession. They also give students an understanding of what to expect when working with clients. The field work office is also a major pro of my graduate program as they have given me the opportunity to do my second-year field placement in San Francisco, California. The field work office has developed strong relationships with social service agencies in New York City and in other cities in the US and abroad. I believe this is one of my favorite attributes of the graduate school program. One of the cons of my graduate program is the communication from the administration to the student body. I feel that the administration doesn't communicate to students in a timely matter when important deadlines or events are coming up. The administration also doesn't communicate to students about important resources that can help them through their graduate experience. As a result, students are left in the dark about important resources or are left to their own devices to find out about these resources. Another con of my graduate program is the communication from the teachers to the student body regarding course work and assignments. Many times the course syllabus doesn't align with what the teacher demands from students in the course. Additionally, I believe that teachers need to be more clear when explaining course assignments.

This program has allowed me to study social work in NYC over three summers while completing the field work requirements living abroad in two different countries.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The program has faculty members who practice the skills they teach in class. The classes in the social work program assist the students to process their own feelings, perspectives and experiences before working with clients. The school offers support through the faculty members and social workers for the students. The cons for the summer block program is that the school has not developed relationships with agencies outside of New York, and the faculty members do not offer feedback or support for the students who are in the summer block program.
