Social Work

Do you enjoy helping others? Are you interested in how to best use your helping skills? This course will explore different models and approaches to social work and social welfare as well as academic options and involvement opportunities here at Rutgers. You will learn how to take the skills you already have—gleaned from life, school, and work experiences (to name a few)—and to direct these skills to the profession of social work. Possible course topics include the history of social work and its place in contemporary society, the career paths available to students interested in the field, and the impact that social workers have on the world at large.
