GADE Program Guide

Welcome to the 2020 GADE GUIDE, a directory developed by the Group for the Advancement of Doctoral Education in Social Work (GADE) to help prospective and current students, social work faculty, and others learn about the varied characteristics of social work doctoral programs in a unified format. Since 1978, GADE has produced several iterations of the "GADE Guide", which offers a brief overview of the diverse doctoral programs offered by GADE member institutions.

The 2020 Program GADE Guide is based on data submitted in May 2020. As programs consistently make updates to their programs, we urge people to contact programs directly for the latest information. For example, many programs have made temporary or permanent changes to their GRE requirements since May 2020, so check directly with programs on these and other requirements.
