Some of us volunteer our weekends and evenings to help causes we care about. Social workers spend their careers working full-time for the well-being of others. They work with individuals one-on-one, coordinate support groups, and advocate for the best possible environments to allow people to live safely with ample opportunities for a quality life. Moreover, they see firsthand the differences they encourage in individuals, communities, and government, watching and participating as they help change to develop.
As a social work major, you’ll develop a strong generalist skill set for working with many different people, including the young and old, individuals and families, and clients and legislators. You'll learn how to advocate for causes and gain experience with real-world situations through hands-on, practical research projects and fieldwork in conjunction with many area organizations. You’ll learn to make a true difference by helping others professionally, conscientiously, intelligently and effectively.
