The University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration awards an AM degree, which is equivalent to an MSW. Our program adds an educational and experiential foundation that combines direct social work practice with policy development, interdisciplinary research, and social science theory. The comprehensive and interdisciplinary nature of the AM degree translates into greater flexibility and choice in your future career. 

Accreditation

The SSA master's program has been continuously accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and its predecessor organizations since 1919. The rigor and quality of an SSA education have earned us a spot among the top graduate schools of social work in the world.
