Apr 22, 2024

U.S. News & World Report has ranked the Master of Social Work program in a tie for No. 95 in the nation and in a tie for No. 6 in the state of Texas for 2024.

OLLU shared the No. 95 position with several prominent schools, such as Louisiana State University, Auburn, DePaul, Seton Hall, North Carolina State and the University of Oklahoma.

In Texas, OLLU tied with the University of Texas-El Paso and the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley for No. 6. U.S. News & World Report ranked OLLU’s MSW program ahead of those at such state schools as TCU (No. 10), Texas State (No. 11) and Texas Tech (No. 14)/  

To compile its ranking, U.S. News & World Report surveyed 319 social work programs accredited by the Council on Social Work Education Board of Accreditation.

“The rankings reflect the peer assessments of academic quality,” U.S. News & World Report wrote, “but other considerations involving location, environment, strength of different fields, cost after tuition and financial aid, and job placement are also very important.”
