Eastern University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
The social work program at Eastern University was fantastic. The small sized classrooms make for great conversations between fellow students. Whenever you are struggling with classwork or internships, the professors are always there to be a support no matter how small you think the problem is. When I entered into the professional work force after graduating, I felt completely prepared for what I was beginning. Also, Eastern offers many wonderful study abroad programs and I 100% recommend taking advantage of one.
Eastern is a good college overall. There is a great community, the campus is safe and beautiful, and the professors care about each student personally.
Eastern's BSW program is one of the best you can get. My education fully prepared me for working as a social worker in the field and I made some great connections through my BSW program. After the 600 hours of field experience I completed through 2 internships, I felt that I was prepared to work as a social worker. Eastern is also connected with many study abroad programs and within my BSW cohort of 16 students, 11 studied abroad in various countries across the world.
For all college students, I think getting an internship or volunteering in your chosen field is REALLY important, to be able to experience the day-to-day requirements and get a feel for the work that you might be doing. I think it would really help those students who aren't sure what career they want, or even the students who have chosen but might not realize what is included or which positions require which degrees.
