Turning a calling into a profession

“There is no degree program other than social work that has the most amount of transferrable skills.”
Speaking to the Human Experience
“There is no other major that speaks to the entire human experience like social work. I am proud to be in a major that teaches how powerful intervention and empowerment are in any arena of life. Social work is where world changers are born!”
Open the Doors to Opportunity
“The undergraduate social work program at Rutgers helped shape not just my understanding of social work, but how to properly implement this crucial field of study in its most needed arenas. The faculty and staff encouraged, supported, and opened doors for me I could not have opened myself.”
“Best decision I ever made...”
“If it wasn’t for the clinical skills that Rutgers gave me, I wouldn’t be the clinician I am. Being a part of the Addiction Counselor Training program was the best decision I ever made, because the program prepared me for what I do today.”
