A career in social work gives people an opportunity to become leaders of social change. Social workers aim to strengthen families, groups and communities hit by economic hardship. It requires specialized learning, listening and critical thinking skills, which the experienced faculty at the Monroe College School of Criminal Justice bring to the classroom each day.
Students pursuing a career in social work learn from active and retired experts in the field. Our instructors have over two decades of involvement in child welfare, human development, foster care, and public health. They share their real-world experiences with students in the classroom, within impoverished neighborhoods and on trips to city-wide social worker departments.
Monroe College offers Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree programs that prepare students for careers in child protective services, social services, senior care, mental illness healthcare, counseling, and case management. Social work is a rewarding career path, one that can empower individuals to drive positive, long-term social change.
