Why Choose Social Work?

Social work is a profession for those who want to make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities on local, state, national, and international levels.  Social workers are committed to advocating for and serving vulnerable populations, and promoting social and economic justice. The social work profession engages in advocacy for the development of conditions for optimal well being and prevention and treatment of social problems.

 

Career opportunities are available to social workers in a wide variety of state, federal, and other public agencies; private non-profit organizations; and private for-profit organizations, including hospitals, mental health centers, schools, adolescent treatment facilities, child care centers, nursing homes, substance abuse treatment centers, public assistance agencies, probation and parole offices, correctional centers, community action agencies, and research facilities. More information can be found on the NASW Help Starts Here webpage.
