USA Today College recently ranked Rutgers School of Social Work in their top three undergraduate schools in the category “Top Colleges for Social Work.” Their rankings are based on a variety of factors, including the ability of the graduates to earn a living in their field.

“We are proud of this distinction and believe that our program expertly prepares graduates for beginning social work practice and beyond. Our accomplished faculty members provide both teaching and opportunities for advanced research. Rutgers BASW graduates go on to pursue advanced degrees or to a variety of social work positions. They provide essential services to individuals, families and communities, as well as leading state and non-profit agencies. Through our undergraduate program, we are educating the social work innovators of tomorrow,” says DuWayne Battle, director of Baccalaureate Program.

The Rutgers School of Social Work is one of the largest schools in the country devoted to education and research on social welfare, and is committed to advancing the field of social work through original research.
