“One of the perks of being a social work major is that there is such a wide variety of populations
and work settings to choose from. Saint Joseph’s BSW program exposes you to
different fields, to help you get a sense of what fits you best. We also have
two required internships, which offer direct, realistic experience in social
work. This prepares us for life after SJC, whether it's graduate school or
jumping straight into the workplace.”
