Social Workers

High School

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.
