UW-Green Bay, Oshkosh Collaborative Master of Social Work program listed among best in U.S.

UW-Green Bay’s Collaborative Master of Social Work program is listed among the best in the country, according to a recent peer ranking from U.S. News & World Report.

The UW-Green Bay graduate program is one of 200 listed in a subsection of the “Top Health Schools” portion of the “Best Graduate Schools” report from U.S. News. The report relies on peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators and faculty at accredited degree programs or schools in each discipline.

UW-Green Bay’s relatively new MSW program, begun during the 2003-04 academic year, is a collaborative program with UW-Oshkosh. The list mentions only UW-Green Bay, which scored in the top half of schools ranked, tying for the No. 89 spot with several other institutions. It scored 2.6 points on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (outstanding), according to the U.S. News report. Surveys were conducted during fall 2011, with only fully accredited programs in good standing receiving a rank.
