Occupations in Social Work

With a degree in social work, you might work as a social worker for an educational, medical, or governmental agency, or you might become a counselor.

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, social workers make about $50,400 annually, and positions are expected to grow at a faster than average rate. Most social work positions require a bachelor's degree, and many require licensures or a master's degree.
