SocialWorkDegrees.org was created as a comprehensive resource for exploring colleges and universities offering a degree in Social Work. All degree levels are covered – Undergraduate and Graduate, and every university in the United States is listed in our database (if there is one missing please let us know!).
We use the United States Department of Labor and US Census Bureau, as well as the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) as our data sources to aggregate all of the social work programs and pertinent information for working in the social work field.
Social Work Degrees is owned and operated by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
SocialWorkDegrees.org researches up-and-coming degree programs, aggregates college educational data, and created this website resource for potential college students. We then help universities find students that are the right fit for their degree programs.
The Team Behind SocialWorkDegrees.org
There are numerous researchers, fact-checkers, writers, programmers, and designers that work on SocialWorkDegrees.org.
History of SocialWorkDegrees.org
Social Work Degrees was originally created in 2015, with a focus only on Social Work degrees, programs, careers, and more. Over the years, we have reviewed thousands of programs, careers, and data to help this website grow. We are continuously researching specific programs, and reviewing them for our readership.
Multiple resources used throughout this website include:
- Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System Data
- CSWE: Council on Social Work Education
- SSWA: School Social Work Association
- NASW: National Association of Social Workers
- U.S. Census Bureau Data
- U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics
Our goal is to provide all of the information on social work education in just one place, then provide you with the information you need to make a decision on your education. We write about:
- Regional, state-by-state coverage of social work in each state, including different universities in that state.
- Detailed information and research on specific career paths and occupations one can have with a social work degree
- Specific social work degrees and all of the accredited universities in the United States that offer the degree
We strive to keep the most accurate and up-to-date information specific only to social work degree programs offered at universities throughout the United States. We use several different sources for our data, but if you find a program or university with incorrect information please be sure to submit the issue with the contact form. We will look at it as soon as possible and make any adjustments after we verify the accuracy.
We cite a lot of statistics, numbers, studies, and other data when researching and writing about information we feel is relevant for any current or prospective counselor. Again, if you find any errors please let us know be emailing us at schools (at) socialworkdegrees.org.
