Social Work (Arizona State University)
This four-year degree equips students to promote social justice, improved social environments and healthy interactions among groups, families and individuals. Social work focuses on the policies and environmental factors that can be changed to promote positive choices and healthy living and working environments for communities of all ages and backgrounds.
Students will take a minimum of 120 credit hours to complete this BSW degree. There is a range of elective courses for students to specialize in a particular focus or to receive a broader base of cultural, political, social and sociological theories and practices.
Many graduates go on to pursue employment in non-profit, for-profit and government institutions that serve communities that experience a range of social issues, such as adoption, child abuse, substance abuse and mental health. From psychology and behavioral counseling to educational theory and healthcare-related information, social work prepares students to handle a cross-section of multiple careers, industries and fields of study.
