An academic course is a class or short series of classes designed to prepare students for college-level study or to supplement their current level of education with additional training and qualifications. These programs may last for up to a year and are available in a wide variety of subjects.

What is a course in social work? For individuals who want to improve the lives of others and those who are already employed in the field of human services, a course in social work can be a valuable stepping-stone to new skills and career opportunities. Participants often learn to interact compassionately with a variety of vulnerable populations, including children, criminals, abuse victims, the disabled and the elderly. Topics of study usually include sociology, psychology, ethics, social policy, grant writing and research.

Many students with an interest in social work are naturally compassionate. Their studies can prepare them to channel that compassion into action, enabling them to make a real difference in the lives of those who are struggling.

Academic courses vary greatly, and the cost of a course depends on the institution, the number of classes required for a degree and the length of the degree program. Students who are interested in social work can find courses at traditional universities and online schools.

The field of social work is broad, encompassing diverse populations and organizations. Depending on their education and experience, students who complete a course in social work can find employment in government agencies, treatment facilities, home healthcare and non-profit organizations. They may specialize in mental health, substance abuse, family services or public health. Social workers often educate the public on important issues, offer counseling and support, and ensure their client’s basic physical and emotional needs are being met.

A course in social work can add to a professional’s qualifications and prepare a participant for further study. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
