MSW Program Ranked Most Affordable in the Nation

UNC Charlotte’s Master of Social Work degree is the most affordable program in the nation, according to the website Social Work Degree Guide.

To select its list, the website looked at a number of resources, including the average in-state graduate tuition listed on the National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator. The guide noted that for the top 100 graduate social work degrees, the average in-state tuition in 2014 was $15,416. It listed UNC Charlotte’s MSW tuition at $4,008.

Housed in the School of Social Work in the College of Health and Human Services, the Master of Social Work is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, the nationally recognized accrediting body for the field. The 62-credit hour program prepares graduates to be "advanced practitioners of social work who engage client systems at all levels in a manner consistent with social work values and ethics."
