Social Services Degree

What is a social services degree?

To become as a social worker, one must have a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate in social services. A social services degree gives someone the skills and knowledge needed to support the well-being of people, families, and communities. Social workers work with individuals and groups to encourage behavior changes and provide coping strategies that help people with difficult situations — allowing them to manage complicated social and health problems. Social workers work with victims of abuse, domestic violence survivors, people struggling with addiction, and more.

Where can you work with a social services degree?

Social workers work in community health centers, private practices, schools, and governmental agencies, providing support to people and groups in these various settings.

What is the difference between a social services degree and a human services degree?

Like social workers, human services professionals provide community outreach, advocacy, and education. Human services professionals focus on the bigger picture, addressing systemic issues that affect communities of all kinds. Human services degree programs are designed to help you improve the quality of life for people in your community. With a Human Services degree, you’ll set yourself on a path toward a rewarding career supporting your community’s most underserved populations by advocating for policy change and providing direct education to patients in various healthcare and community settings.
