"This program does not prepare students for successful careers in social work. Above all, it does not prepare one for the ASWB exam. I remember the faculty, in particular a professor  encouraging students to work for the state of Washington and not take and pass the ASWB and get licensed like all other responsible professional social workers do. Outrageous! What an irresponsible program. If you choose social work, choose a program that will help you learn the profession and pass the ASWB, otherwise don't bother. Very few of the faculty are licensed so that should tell you something. The staff are also bigoted towards those students who don't agree with their politics. This program was a waste of time and money. If I had to do this program over again, I wouldn't. I agree with the following statement, absolutely spot-on:" Two words: Just Terrible! I'm not certain about the other programs (Business, Law, Communications, etc., etc.), but if you're looking for a school that teaches you what to think instead of how to think, then University of Washington Tacoma's Masters in Social Work will probably be a great fit. If you want a program that will help inform you and prepare you for a career in social work,,,,,, look elsewhere. The entire program is centered on training the next generation of social justice warriors and ANTIFA members, they are wholly uninterested in anything else. Even the most minor disagreement with a faculty member on their dogmatic beliefs will be seen as subversive, you will be branded heretic and brutally suppressed. If youre a free thinker or have even one critical thought in your head, stay away from University of Washington Tacoma's MSW program. Seriously, I'm not joking.""

"It was close enough to my home 35 miles away, great teachers, small enough school to feel I got the support and feedback I needed."

"Pros it's a graduate program close to home and the hours are perfect for the workload. Cons is the social work program, focuses more on social justice as opposed to the clinical track... This should be an option for the program"
