Social Work Jobs to Explore

Social work jobs are as diverse as the field itself, and for those who have answered the call to serve others, earning a Master of Social Work (MSW) provides you with the chance to elevate your social work career and strengthen your community impact.

MSW careers extend beyond social work jobs, and the relevance that an MSW has can be applied in fields that range from business development and legal services, to media and communications and legal services. The professional opportunities in social work are expansive and sometimes have cross-sector applicability, which is why our online MSW program prepares you to take on roles in a variety of areas.

Increase Your Value

An MSW can set you on the path for personal success, even as you work toward having an invaluable impact in your community. While holders of a Bachelor of Social Work are generally prepared to take entry-level positions in the field, those who have earned an MSW are often considered for more advanced employment in clinical settings like hospitals and healthcare facilities. Additionally, a master’s degree will likely be essential for social workers who wish to establish a private practice or seek an administrative position. An advanced degree can also increase your earning power in a field expected to grow 9 percent by 2031.1
