Social Work:

Social Sciences
How do you reconcile the culture of abundance with that of poverty? Who takes the time to listen to someone who feels left behind by society? How can people transition from a difficult circumstance to a better place in their lives? The passion of people who go into social work fields is a deep-seated desire for social justice and a better quality of life for people who’ve experienced tough times.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of social workers is expected to increase by 16 percent during the 2008-18 decade, which is faster than the average for all occupations. If you are driven to bring change to the world through your professional life, you will find no better place to start than the Champlain College Social Work program.
