University of Washington - Tacoma Graduate Reviews

3 reviews
This rating is for the UWT education program.
I would NOT recommend this program if you are interested in wanting to be a teacher. This program provides lack of support for the students. The program overall is very unorganized and things are always switched up on us. No one is clear and everyone does things differently.
We have supervisors that guide and support us through our student teaching journey, but all supervisors do different things.
We are placed in Tacoma school districts and we are being told to stay longer than the required time for our student teaching. Some supervisors are requiring student teachers to student teach until autumn quarter (a whole extra unnecessary quarter).
I would NOT recommend this unorganized and unsupportive program.
This campus is also not as diverse as they claim to be.

After completing my first year in the MSW program here I can say that I am really enjoying UWT. The campus is convenient and aesthetically pleasing. The professors are passionate and knowledgeable and I am learning a lot. Overall, a very positive learning environment.
Small class sizes have made my experience very good with faculty and other students. It's easy to get help and there are good campus resources.
