Social Work was recently listed as one of the top five "hot hiring potential" careers by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (2012).  The job growth for social work is projected to be at least 16% in the next decade according to the Department of Labor Statistics. And a BSW is the only undergraduate human service degree that allows for licensing upon graduation.

As a Social Work professional you will discover endless career opportunities. You can have a rewarding and satisfying job helping others improve their lives, their families and their communities!
