"The pros of the graduate program is that I am able to complete the program at my own pace. The con would be that I have class after my internship starting at 6pm and ending at 9pm."

"What I enjoy most about the Whitney M. Young Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University is the rich history that it is built on. From the moment you step into a classroom at Clark Atlanta you learn about the many men and women who have paved the way before you. I most definitely appreciate that fact that many of the professors are themselves graduates from Clark Atlanta University and have a sincere investment in the programs integrity and the students who are enrolled. The cons to the School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University are no different from any other social work program which unfortunately to some extent out of the University's control due to the requirements set by our accrediting body the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE). Due to the internship requirements and work load suggested to complete the program in two years, working is almost impossible and there is only so much financial aid one can acquire to maintain a full year's worth of living expenses. Besides those minor issues, I am proud to be a Panther and most definitely proud that my MSW degree will be awarded from Clark Atlanta University!."

"The graduate program is excellent. The overall curriculum and requirements can be a bit challenging but it is worth it in the end. The cons would be that the program doesn't really seem to cater to the evening Graduate students. It is harder to reach your adviser in the evening and each year we have to meet with an adviser to receive a registration pin to register for the upcoming academic year instead of just going in and registering for classes which I feel is a bit silly. I love that the school is next to both Spelman and Moorehouse College! I do not like the parking. The school makes you pay to park in the Parking garage which I feel isn't fair since the tuition here is expensive. There should be better parking for students and more lit areas."

"Clark Atlanta University Graduate Program of Social Work is of the best programs academically in the state of Georgia. There are so many great attributes of attending Clark Atlanta, although, there are a few that can be improved upon as well. Students and professors shape and mold a university into what makes it standout and become individualized among other institutions. Clark Atlanta professors are dedicated to teaching and helping students at all time.There is continuous encouragement and dedication on the behalf of professors to meet students where they are academically. Professors take time to explain and demonstrate concepts and chapters before test and final exams. There is also continuous follow ups after receiving appropriate acceptance for internships and jobs based on specialty, which are only a few of the cons of attending Clark Atlanta University. Attending Clark Atlanta is not only a privilege but an honor. History has been made through the lives of so many at Clark Atlanta. Walking the campus not only reminds you of the past but also of what can be improved. The Social Work program is excellent, but classrooms deserves to be just as lush in resources and technology as other academic programs. Providing air condition/heat at night for students would be helpful for students to avoid distractions.These are a few cons that can be improved quickly and with the appropriate resources. Resources to improve a campus are just some of the important assets need to improve a campus. Clark Atlanta University is a great institutions, and like all institutions it has pros and cons. Although, the education at Clark Atlanta is unlike any other institution, which is definitely not con but a pro for many students. Priceless."

"Pros: enriched environment where you gain in-depth knowledge of the Social Work practice. Con: fees assessed with the graduate program. Make sure it's something you really want to do because its not cheap!"
