Union University Reviews
The Social Work program at Union University prepares students for a career in Social Work through a generalist practice approach. Students learn theories and skills to equip them for a myriad of roles in the field of social work. In the first 2 years of the program, students learn how to evaluate societal systems, think through personal biases and prejudice, and serve clients through basic social work theories. In the last 2 years of the program, students learn practical skills such as program evaluation, personal interviewing, mental illness recognition and assessment, and well as development of treatment plans. The last semester of the program is a full-time practicum under the supervision of a Licensed Master of Social Work. The student completes a senior project highlighting that the student is capable of practicing in the community what was learned in the classroom. The program is comprehensive, the faculty is accessible to students and knowledgable in the field.
Union is dedicated to students succeeding. I had a great experience my professors were very hands own. They were very knowledgeable in theSocial Work field. Many of them had Ph'D and had been in this field for over 30 years. All the students were prepared
This school is very overpriced and overrated. Don't fall for the hype! Majority of the professors are racist (including the dean of the Nursing Program) I recommend this school university for any student who is white and has money to blow! Every semester our tuition increased without any warning! I graduated the Nursing program with 40+k in debt!
Union is a school committed to excellence in academics and character. The majority of the professors have terminal degrees and are highly respected in their fields. Student life opportunities are endless and create a close knit and energetic community. It's an excellent place to prepare for life, both professionally and personally.
Great environment, great place to go. Small school atmosphere, but big enough to get your alone time when you need it.
I graduated from Union's Accelerated BSN program at the Germantown, TN campus. We had some wonderful clinical and lecture instructors that were very knowledgeable. Our clinical instructors definitely kicked us into gear from the beginning of the program. Although, the program itself was rigorous, they needed to do a better job of streamling some their processes to give ALL students a fair experience. For example, the way we signed up for "preferred" clinical times was that someone would post a piece of paper on the wall for each clinical day/time/location and basically let us run and climb over each other to sign up. When the pages were posted, usually just a couple people in the class were notified and of course, those students would sign up and tell their friends prior to informing anyone else. In the end, we were all well prepared to pass NCLEX, the actual experience was just a little rough around the edges.
