"The staff there are top notch and encourage learning and critical thinking. The internships are developed thoughtfully and well supervised. The buildings were old in the social work buildings but they have done a lot of updates since I went through the program."

"Ok. Not challenging. Not enough diversity either."

"The faculty were educated in their areas of expertise, wealth of knowledge. The professors were down to earth and admirable at the same time. The internship process was challenging however with regard to finding a good fit and with the amount of hours required to work there. Self advocacy however can go a long way in this program. The campus is beautiful with a timely bus system."

"The University of Tennessee Knoxville campus is truly a beautiful place for ground breaking learning. I've learned to be a better student, professional, and overall student when utilizing all that the campus has to offer. While I'm there just for my Masters, it has become home."

"The University of Tennessee Knoxville College of Social Work was not what I expected. Most of the faculty were great, but the available field placements/internships were lacking. There was no sense of urgency or responsibility on behalf of the faculty to improve the available field placements/internships. Prior to applying, I attended several informational sessions where I and others asked about job placement rates post graduation as well as starting pay for recently graduated MSSW's. We were told that there was a huge need for social workers and the majority of students were employed full time as an MSSW within 6 months. We are also told that we could expect starting salaries ranging from 40-50k. Neither of these things has been true. The job search has been brutal and those of us who have found jobs have been lucky to start at 30, with the majority making less. Many in my cohort are not even employed in the field because there simply are no jobs. If I had it to do over again, I would have taken a closer look at other schools before deciding to attend the University of Tennessee."

"I am currently enrolled to begin the Social Work Master's program in the Fall Semester of 2013. I rated these attributes from one of the Social Work classes I took as a Non-degree seeking graduate student. From the class that I took,I was very impressed with the professor, Dr. F, and was pleased with her method of testing, grading, and work assignments. As of now, I do not have any cons."
