"Widener is a small university, the Master's in Social Work program teaches relevant material that will be applied out in the field after graduation. My biggest issue with the program is the process for internship placement, and the quality of other classmates is questionable at times."

"Widener's Dual MSW/M.Ed. program in human sexuality is a wonderful program. It is a shame that there is not more financial support for the graduate students."

"I love the social work faculty. However, the enrollment services staff members have no idea what they are doing. They are unhelpful when it comes to loan information. They have not refunded my left over loan amount and billed me for $1,500 worth of insurance charges even after I proved I had my own health insurance. If you can get past enrollment services Widener is a great school education wise."

"I love the program, but there is room for improvement. I do not recommend the program to anyone who is not serious about there education. I think this program has changed my thinking and life. The professors are phenomenal and supportive."

"Widener University was a great program for my dual degree experience. I was there for social work and education in human sexuality. The social work program had professors that were very knowledgeable and obviously studied their crafts outside of the classroom setting. Many of the teacher went above and beyond for the students and continue to keep in touch even after graduation. Other pros include flexible class, day and night time class offerings; knowledgeable staff, smaller class sizes, hands-on experience. A con that was sited by many of my class members though not personally experienced was the difficulty in securing an internship for additional experience and reconciling that with a full time work schedule. Please note, that the staff does attempt to work with those individuals who have full time jobs and other obligations. I did feel that there was sometimes a disconnect between the two programs that I was in, as they did not seem to communicate very much with one another. However, some of those issues were alleviated by having an advisor who straddled both programs and knew how to navigate them both."
