"It was interesting but you definitely had to navigate the program on your own. There was not much direction."

"I'm currently enrolled in the School of Social Work at the University of Maryland - Baltimore campus. The classes are obtainable. If you're on a 3 or 4 year track, you can take the first 2 semesters slow and work full time while you're in school. Field placements aren't very flexible around a work schedule, though. The teachers are great - super knowledgable. The students are pretty smart but not very challenging. I get it, we're all liberal social workers... but no one here is pushing my views are forcing me to see the opposite (conservative) socio-political viewpoints."

"The graduate program provides academic flexibility, allowing students to take day, evening and weekend classes. The students in the program come from very different backgrounds allowing for excellent class discussions, diversity in experiences and expectations of future work environments."

"There needs to be a few technological advances in the class scheduling department. Cons are there is very limited flexibility when it comes to choosing classes."

"The professors are definitely a great attribute to the students. Most have a lot of professional experience and are always willing to give students educational and professional advice. In addition, many are flexible and supportive of students. They are extremely knowledgeable and you will learn a lot for your MSW career! However, the overall administration of the school can sometimes be daunting with financial aid and student advising. So students need to be prepared to advocate for themselves when they need things done. In addition, the field placements make it nearly impossible to work full time and complete the MSW program. So many students have to stop working, which means they have to incur additional student loans for tuition and living expenses. Overall, the program is good and I would recommend it, but those are all things to consider when applying for admission."
