To prepare for a social work career, you should take courses in
high school that will improve your communications skills, such as
English, speech, composition, and and a foreign language (such as
Spanish). On a debate team, you could further develop your skills
in communication as well as research and analysis. History, social
studies, and sociology courses are important in understanding the
concerns and issues of society. Although limited work is available
for those with only an associate's degree (as a social work aide or
social services technician), the most opportunities exist for
people with more advanced degrees in social work.
