Edinboro University’s Master of Social Work program was rated in the top 10 national 2017 Top Online MSW Programs list. This rating was made based on positive feedback from both students and graduates of the program.

Head of the MSW program, Dr. Elaine Rinfrette, said the program is successful because the faculty fulfills student needs, as well as a relevant social work curriculum. Additionally, students are able to constantly access the program since it is online, making it easily accessible and useful.

In a recent news release published by Edinboro University, Dr. Erinn Lake, acting dean of graduate studies, said, “This outstanding ranking is indicative of high student satisfaction with the MSW program and Edinboro University.”

She continued, “We attribute that achievement to the quality of the students in the program, the outstanding curriculum as developed by our highly talented MSW faculty, and the ongoing collaboration between our graduate faculty and EU leadership.”

The award was announced by SR Education Group, which showcases the highest-ranked schools with master’s degree programs in social work.

SR Education Group was formed in 2004 and ranks graduate programs, only based on student reviews.

SR Education Group’s ratings are dependent on student reviews. In order for a school’s program to be recognized as a 2017 Top Online Program university, more than five students from the specific major must submit online feedback on the school.

“It makes you feel like the work you did is worthwhile," said Rinfrette.
