Social work graduates find meaningful careers working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities in a wide range of settings like schools, hospitals, prisons, and community mental health centers. Generalist social workers view clients and client systems from a strengths perspective and work to empower them to realize their full potential. Using an anti-oppressive, professional problem solving process, social workers engage, assess, broker services, advocate, counsel, educate, and organize with and on behalf of clients and client systems. As a professional degree path, social workers at BSW and MSW levels can become credentialed through their state licensing boards.
