Social Work Degree

Social workers are in the business of helping others.

There are two kinds of social workers – direct-service social workers and clinical social workers. Direct-service social workers help clients to cope with problems affecting their quality of life. Clinical social workers are tasked with diagnosing and treating mental, behavioral and emotional issues of clients.

A number of degree options are available for those who wish to pursue a career in social work. Most social work degree programs combine a liberal arts education with a concentration in social work.

Social workers who possess a Bachelor of Social Work degree earn an average of $30,000 per year, according to the National Association of Social Workers.
