Social Work Program
The Marshall Moment

Social work is an exciting, rewarding, and fast-growing profession that is in high demand. With contemporary social issues such as child abuse, homelessness, racism, discrimination against people of color and income levels, AIDS, poverty, aging, teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, violence against women, and juvenile delinquency, there has never been a more important need for social workers.

Graduates from the Marshall University Department of Social Work have an excellent track record in finding employment in the social work field. Alumni work in hospitals, mental health centers, shelters for battered women, and numerous other human service agencies. There continues to be a growing need for social workers in the Tri-State area and nationwide. The BWS degree is the entry level edge into the profession. Our MSW degree provides advanced education with a specialization in behavioral health.
