A social work degree from Mercyhurst University is a professional degree that prepares students to work
in any number of fields upon graduation.
Students who continue on to graduate school, which is the case for a majority of social work alumni, continually indicate how well prepared they are to excel in their graduate studies. The foundation courses they take at the undergraduate level also allow them to enroll in graduate school as advanced standing students.
Examples of areas with career paths for social workers include:
Social Welfare Research
Social Welfare Policy
National and International Sustainability Initiatives
Overall employment of social workers is projected to grow 16% from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Employment growth will be driven by increased demand for healthcare and social services, but will vary by specialization (Department of Labor).
