There are some incredible professors at BUSSW! While there are some structural issues within the school, the active student body is supported by some key facility members.

It is way too expensive for the education you receive. I don’t feel it was worth the money, especially once you consider having to pay thousands of dollars to intern at an agency and not get paid for it. The field education program isn’t great and although they say they help you find an internship, you are on your own. If you live out of state this can be difficult and may cause you to graduate late.
I have absolutely loved BUSSW. I had originally gone to a different university and transferred to BU, and it has been amazing. The program is really well-rounded and the staff are dedicated to ensuring that their students get a quality education and experience.
