Accreditation

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga MSW (UTC-MSW) program has achieved full accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on accreditation.

Full Accreditation by the CSWE indicates that UTC’s MSW program has demonstrated the ability to inculcate its students with a “holistic competence” of the standards set by the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards of 2015. Full compliance of these standards includes providing the necessary knowledge, values, skills, and cognitive and affective processes needed to work with the various demographic groups that a social worker might interact with on a daily basis.

Students entering a fully accredited program will have more employment opportunities as some employers require proof of education from a CSWE accredited program. Students will also have the option of sitting for licensure in all fifty states and the District of Columbia.
