For the right student, social work can be an exciting, challenging, and rewarding profession. A career in social work involves helping people to find ways of living more satisfying and productive lives. Social workers are concerned with the numerous problems, circumstances, and barriers that prevent people from achieving the goal that of living satisfying and productive lives. There are many problems and circumstances that interfere with the efforts of people to achieve these goals including, but not limited to, child abuse and neglect, health problems, alcohol and drug abuse, mental illness, poor education and lack of job skills, marital and family disruption, racial discrimination, oppression, sex discrimination, and impoverished living circumstances.Thank you for your interest and continued support of the Social Work Program.
