Social Work

Be the Change

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. Advanced generalist social workers possess advanced competencies in multilevel, multimethod approaches and are equipped to work independently in complex environments that may require specialized skill sets (see Hernandez, 2013). As a professional degree path, social workers at BSW and MSW levels can become credentialed through their state licensing boards.
