Social Work

A Social Work degree from USF opens doors to a wide range of positions in mental health, disabilities, elderly care, medical care, corrections, family and children services, case management, human resources, church ministry, community planning and a variety of other areas.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of social workers in the U.S. is expected to grow by 25 percent from 2010 to 2020, which is faster than the average for all occupations. The social work profession is rapidly expanding to meet the growing needs of children and families at risk, the elderly population and the aging baby boomer generation.
