  1. Thank you guys. It does seem to be helpful to the people that obtain it. The people that don't seem to gripe about it though, due to the cost.
  2. Look at this program: https://msw.usc.edu/academic/doctor-social-work/ What is the point in degrees like this? I'm not sure it adds much to someone who already has policy and social work education and/or experience. What are your guys' thoughts on the program?
  3. I may be a little odd in that I am in a MSW/MPA/MPP program. I get to share credits so it is only 2.5 years and have scholarships and TA money covering the tuition. I feel that all of the degrees serve their purposes. I currently work in human services for a state government and the majority of the courses I have taken so far are directly related to my chosen profession. I would definitely say that the MPP has been the least necessary program, but both the MPA and MSW are invaluable for my field. Are you specifically wanting to go into a Nonprofit/Non profit management?
  4. Thanks for your reply. I was thinking the same thing. It does not really seem necessary and personally I would rather be working instead of in a classroom setting anymore. They do pay you overtime for attending thought so that is nice
  5. Hello, I was wondering what your guys' opinion on the Doctor of Social Work was? Specifically for someone that works in human services for the government, would there be a reason to pursue such a degree? Are do you think that the DSW is just a marketing ploy for those that want a doctorate?
  6. Hello, Are executive programs, such as the Certified Program Manager (CPM) certifications valuable for promotion into higher level positions? I will be holding both a MPA and a MPP already at that time, however I ask because my employer is willing to pay for 100% of it if I enroll. Thank you!
  7. You are absolutely right. I don't think that it would really change anything. Would a DPA be a useful degree to pursue? Just trying to bolster my resume for Upper Management positions.
  8. What do you guys think about the Valdosta State University Doctor of Public Administration? Is the degree useful for someone that works in government and may want to adjunct at the local state university or is it a waste of money?
  9. I completely agree. Hoping to get back that way eventually!
  10. I agree with this as well. Generally test scores are not something that are to be included on the CV.
  11. I was wondering what you guys think about the Ph.D. in Conflict Analysis & Resolution that is offered by Nova Southeastern University: http://cahss.nova.edu/doctoral/conflict-analysis-phd/index.html Would it be beneficial to someone like myself that will already have a MSW, MPA, and MPP in a middle level social services administration position? It is fairly pricey at $990 per credit hour.
  12. I think this may just be in California. There are at least 3 states that I know of that don't require anything more than a bachelor's degree.
  13. I agree with this OP. The GRE is not everything and your scores are competitive.
  14. I agree with this as well. Focus on making yourself look good, if it does come up, be prepared with an answer, not an excuse as to why it happened and what you learned from it.
  15. I agree as well. It does help, but not a huge a necessity unless you want to pursue doctoral level study.
