Social work is a high demand and recession-proof job. Degrees earned from the Department of Social Work open the door to a variety of careers, such as licensed social worker, home care supervisor, senior citizen service worker, elderly manpower planner, social welfare administrator, school social worker, school counselor, medical social worker, career counselor, community organizer, human resources personnel, and more. Job growth is projected to be particularly strong for social workers in the areas of mental health, substance abuse, medical facilities, schools, and aging populations.
