Social Work

Study social work at Wright State and learn how to promote well-being through competent intervention. You will prepare for a rewarding career in children’s services, employee assistance, mental health services, substance abuse agencies, and many other avenues of service. Few career fields offer you as many opportunities for deep personal job satisfaction. Most social workers are in direct practice, but you may also consider becoming an outreach worker, community organizer, or nonprofit administrator. Choose an Associate of Arts at the Lake Campus only or Bachelor of Arts program or go on to postgraduate work and earn a Master of Arts degree.
