Launch Your Career in Social Work with NASW

We all chose social work for different reasons, but as you will learn social work is not a 9 to 5 job and your commitment to social justice does not end when you leave work. Social work is more than a major, more than a job, more than a career – it is who we are!


If social work is a commitment to the greater good then why not, as students, continue to be part of your professional association – NASW? Being a member of NASW shows your commitment to the field.
