Outside of the classroom, social work students have ample opportunity to learn and grow. In addition to a field education experience, our students work on applied research projects, volunteer with a variety of local agencies, and gain leadership experience in student groups and committees.
Social work graduates are prepared for positions as social workers in organizations such as community agencies, social service agencies, health care organizations, and businesses with Employee Assistance Programs. Social workers provide services to a broad range of clients who face many different challenges.
Students may attend graduate school to develop a specialty within social work and earn a master’s of social work (MSW), or pursue related disciplines such as rehabilitation, school guidance, and criminal justice.
