"I was an advanced standing MSW student (thanks to Bachelor of Social Work degree), so only attended the UIC social work program for one year to acquire my degree. It's a commuter college, so difficult to connect and network with other students and faculty. Adequately prepared me for the field of school social work, but did not find the program noteworthy."

"I really enjoyed the Social Work program at UIC. I had an amazing practicum professor who retired a few years after my cohort graduated. Some of the professors are PhD students who are not necessarily very skilled in teaching, which can make the program seem very low-quality. For students entering a social work program, I would recommend choosing your field placements very carefully. A good field placement can make or break your experience. For UIC students, I would highly recommend not to live on campus. There are plenty, more affordable, places to live in Chicago that will help you save money. Looking back, I sometimes regret spending so much money on a Social Work degree since the earning potential is not great for the amount of time and money you spend on school."

"I was a full time masters student for both years and I feel that I left my program with a great deal of experience to help me in the social work field. The field experiences you also choose each year are a big component of your education which helps apply the classroom material in a variety of agencies"

"UIC School of Social work offered many tracts to fit individual students' needs. The professors all had real world experience, and were mostly adjunct, making the the course material and their personal information very practical."

"The faculty and students of the MSW program are representative of the community; They offer many, new perspectives to the classroom. Small classrooms allow students to interact and engage in meaningful discussions. In terms of cons, the MSW program is very demanding. Also, the financial aid package is inadequate."
