Social Work Job Outlook

MCC Campus(es): MCC-Longview
Contacts: LV-Gerald Palmer, 816.604.2113

Social work isn't just about helping kids or families; it's a whole lot more.

The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) is fast becoming the preferred entry level degree in human services.  It is the only undergraduate degree in the helping fields that allows BSW level licensure.

A student graduating with an Associate in Arts with well-chosen electives will be prepared to transfer to a four-year college or university that offers a BSW program.

Employment opportunities for persons with a bachelor's degree in social work (BSW) include case management services with diverse populations:

  • such as people with behavioral health disorders including addictions and eating disorders;
  • individuals with developmental, health, educational and physical disabilities;
  • the elderly;
  • abused children and adolescents;
  • survivors and victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse;
  • the terminally ill;
  • the poor, and the homeless.
