      Online Master of Social Work Program Gets Top Rank – Again

      For the second consecutive year, Widener University has received the number one ranking on the list of 2017 Top Online MSW Programs published by

      The list is based entirely on student feedback. The organization ranked 10 programs from across the country, obtained from more than 57,000 student reviews and ratings of more than 1,600 colleges. One student commented:

      "Widener was the best choice I could've made for a quality online graduate education."

      "We are proud to remain first on this national list of online social work programs," Widener University President Julie E. Wollman said. "We are committed to the success of all of our students through personal attention and dedicated support to achieve their goals."

      The Council on Social Work Education accredits Widener's online Master of Social Work program. The advanced curriculum weaves trauma and its impact on mental health into all coursework, as the program prepares clinical social workers to deliver culturally competent, evidence-based social work services to individuals, families and groups from diverse client populations.

      "At Widener, we develop social workers whose influences are seen, heard and known throughout the field and community," said Dr. Paula Silver, associate provost for global engagement and dean of the School of Human Service Professions, which houses the social work program. "We have worked hard to develop this outstanding program and it is gratifying to earn this top ranking through student satisfaction. Positive student reviews are our highest praise."
