Graduateprograms.com has announced its Spring 2015 “Top Social Work Grad Programs for Value.” Graduateprograms.com defines “value” by posing the following questions to students: How satisfied are you with your graduate program? Did you make the right choice? Would you choose this program again?

Program rankings, compiled using data gathered between September 1, 2012 and March 31, 2015, encompass reviews posted by more than 7,500 social work students participating in over 500 social work programs nationwide.  Ratings are based on a 10-star system (with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best).

The Top 10 Social Work Programs for Value are listed below:

Boise State University

Methodology. Graduateprograms.com reaches current and recent graduate students through scholarship entries as well as social media platforms.  These program rankings cover a period from September 1, 2012 to March 31, 2015.
Graduateprograms.com assigns 15 ranking categories to each graduate program at each graduate school.  Rankings cover a variety of student topics such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid and quality of network.

For a given graduate program, rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 ranking categories.  These scores are then compared across all ranked schools for that program and are translated into a final ranking for that graduate program, i.e., “business and management”.  A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that program.
