Fast Facts: Social Work
As part of the degree program in social work, students receive actual on-the-job experience at a variety of professionally supervised agencies in the region.

Students can check with the department chair as to where they can fulfill these required hours.
Social work graduates find work within child and family service agencies, hospitals and other healthcare facilities, community action agencies, schools, child and adult protection organizations, residential treatment programs, tribal social service agencies, gerontological service programs, mental health treatment centers, criminal justice settings, developmental and mental disability services, and international social work organizations.
