SCU/UST School of Social Work Nationally Ranked

'Nationally Ranked, Practice Focused and Community Engaged'

In March, 2012, U.S. News and World Report announced their national ranking of the Top or Best Schools of Social Work.  The St. Catherine University-University of St. Thomas School of Social Work achieved nationally ranking tied for 52nd out of 210 schools of social work in this country.  This put us in the top 25% of all schools of social work nationally.  In reviewing the list of nationally ranked schools, we are one of two schools that does not offer a doctoral degree (DSW or PhD) in social work and one of five schools not classified as a 'Research #1 University (high or very high research activity).  This is an awesome achievement of which we are very proud.
