The social work classes and faculty offices are in McComsey Hall. The classroom environment lends itself to a variety of teaching formats and styles including lecture, practice simulations, and audio-visual presentations. The faculty-student FTE is BSW 1:19, MSW 1:12 and the classroom ratio range from 1:15 to 1:35, depending on the type of course. As a result, faculty are able to get to know each student in their classes.
