What Can I Do with a Degree in Social Work?

Few occupations can match the broad range of opportunities that accompany a degree in social work. We provide assistance to people in every stage of life – from infancy to older adulthood. Social workers are one of the largest providers of professional mental and behavioral health services in the United States; we can be found in social service agencies, mental health clinics and substance abuse treatment centers, hospitals, schools, government agencies, private non-profits and countless other settings.

The core mission of the social work profession is to serve people needing assistance and to work to enhance their well-being. Social work is distinguished from other helping professions by our understanding of people and the problems they are experiencing in the context of their environment. Our profession has a strong commitment to social and economic justice, and a unique focus on supporting the needs of people who are vulnerable and oppressed.
