"This program is incredible for students who are a good fit - the program is less "clinical" than other social work programs. If you are a student who enjoys academia and intellectual pursuits (as opposed to the purely practical), this program is perfect. The professors and courses are interesting and stimulating. It is pretty expensive, but the cost of living here is low (versus New York, where many of the social work schools reside). Also, the program is quite generous with scholarship funding, unlike the other programs I was accepted into. Graduating students will have access to an excellent network, especially if they plan to stay in the Chicago area."

"The caliber of education at the University of Chicago's School of Social Service Administration is definitely top of the line. With an emphasis on social policy, SSA graduates are very well rounded in their understanding of social service provision from both a micro and a macro perspective. Situated in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, the location of the program has both its advantages and disadvantages. While Chicago is a diverse city with many opportunities, it is not the most affordable place to live. In my experience, however, the University of Chicago has been very generous with their financial aid and scholarship endowment. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this program to anyone interested in pursuing a career in social work."
