Social Work Major


Social Work Major Overview

Social Work is about helping people. Our world will always have people in need; in need of individuals who will respond to the Christian call of service with a commitment to help others. The Social Work Major teaches you to work with individuals, groups, and communities. The program blends theoretical and applied techniques.

You'll observe and participate at social work agencies, children's homes, homes for the aged, mental and penal institutions, probation and parole agencies, juvenile courts, inner city ghettos, and depressed rural areas. This practical educational approach provides valuable insight into career decisions and a significant advantage in establishing yourself in a successful career.
