“I really want to make a difference.”
“I want to help people.”
Those two sentiments are the themes I hear time and time again during advising appointments with exploratory students. A career in social work offers the opportunity to help groups of people and communities in many different settings.
Children. Families. Hospitals. Mental health agencies. Substance abuse treatment. Criminal justice. Veterans and military families. Child welfare. Non-profit management. Gerontology. Yep, social workers work in those settings and beyond. Social workers are the largest provider of mental health care in the country. They make meaningful contributions to advocate and bring about social change on both individual and community levels.
The social work profession has one of the fastest growing job outlooks in the nation. Professional licensure is available for both BASW and MSW graduates.
