Annual Survey of Social Work Programs

Each year social work programs respond to the Annual Survey of Social Work Programs, which includes questions about program structure, faculty, students, financial aid, field placements, concentrations, and graduates. Summaries of the data are available below. Additionally, program directors can request individualized reports through the Benchmarking Service.
