ACU’s School of Social Work Named in Top 25 Christian Social Work Programs
The Social Work Degree Guide has named ACU’s School of Social Work as the 6th-ranking program in the United States among church-affiliated social work programs. The academic rigor of the School’s programs, quality of curriculum, student-faculty ratios, and “return on investment” (based on subsequent earning records of graduates) were cited as strengths of the School.
“We are pleased with this external recognition of the quality of ACU’s social work program,” said Dr. Tom Winter, Director of the School of Social Work. “We believe that our emphasis on evidence-based social work practice, coupled with our long-standing commitment to providing academically sound professional preparation in a distinctly Christian environment, makes the School an appealing choice for students.”
In the past year nearly twenty MSSW students and recent graduates have presented refereed presentations or papers at regional, national or international social work programs, and seven undergraduate students have been engaged in mentored research, with several presenting at regional or national meetings.
