June 5, 2023 — Forbes has named the University of Memphis online Master of Social Work Programs in its top 10 nationally for 2023. It is the highest the program has ever been ranked by any ranking system.

“The University of Memphis is proud to offer an excellent Master of Social Work (MSW) program in a flexible format and at an affordable price,” said Dr. Susan Neely-Barnes, professor/director and chair of UofM’s School of Social Work.

“Our MSW program can be combined with other master’s programs at the University of Memphis to create a dual degree. We also offer online graduate certificates in clinical social work, substance abuse, school social work and play therapy that can be easily completed along with the MSW degree.”
