A social work degree enhances student success in social work practice, administration of social services, and preparation for graduate and professional schools or both. Students develop written and oral communication skills and theory evolution, culture-specific practice, and research competencies through class lectures, individual and group projects, university-awarded summer and semester research awards or projects, and field or agency practice experiences.
