Career Options with an MSW

One of the most exciting aspects of getting an MSW is all of the career options that will be available to you.  Given that social work is a profession marked by a strong desire to help others, social workers can work in a variety of roles such as:

  • Child, family, and school social work
  • Medical and public health social work
  • Mental health and substance abuse social work
  • Administration, planning, and policymaking
  • Community outreach and organizing
  • Research
  • Training and education
