Program rankings, compiled using data gathered between September 2012 and March 2015, encompass reviews posted by more than 7,500 social work students participating in more than 500 social work programs nationwide. Ratings are based on a 10-star system (with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best). Winthrop ranked #25 on the list.
