Sacred Heart University Reviews

16 reviews
I knew from the moment I went to the open house for my MSW program that Sacred Heart University was my school of choice. The knowledge each Professor has is astounding, and you can feel their passion for this subject matter when they speak. I felt right at home and bonded with many people in the program. I am learning a great deal and I think this education is preparing me to be an excellent Social Worker and is providing me with the tools that I need to succeed!
