    If you enjoy helping other solve problems in their lives, and truly want to make a difference in others’ lives, you may want to consider a social work major. Classes include human behavior studies, social and economic justice, social work practice, social work research, value and ethic. You may also conduct scientific research and get hands-on experience in social service agencies locally and possibly study abroad.

    Social work majors also specialize in specific areas like geriatrics, adoptions, child abuse, spousal abuse, and substance abuse. Students with social work degrees find work in a variety of settings, from mental health clinics and hospitals to schools and private practices.

    Many graduates pursue a master’s degree in clinical social work, enabling them to diagnose and treat mental, behavioral and emotional issues. Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela are considered pioneers of social work for their roles in social activism.
