What are your thoughts on religious-based MSW programs? I have a friend attending the newly-created Asbury University's MSW program, and she is required to sign papers stating that she will uphold the school's Christian moral code, and she is required to take classes dealing with Wesleyan theology, Christian ethics, and so forth while getting her MSW. I had originally applied for this program, but when I spoke with the director, he told me that they generally do not accept openly homosexual students or other students "living in sin" because these students cannot in good faith abide by the school's moral codes. That alone caused me to abandon pursuing that particular school. Now I'm in a good program which is respected across the country, but I still sometimes think about programs like the one my friend is attending, which require some degree or another of a religious component in their MSW work. What are your thoughts on how a religious-infused degree compares to others, or your thoughts in general (please remain respectful)? Personally I worry for her and fear we're getting very different educations with our Masters, because I can easily see a future employer choosing somebody who has gone to a secular school and had a broad education with many diverse groups of people over somebody who went to a religious-based school and didn't necessarily have that.
