Looking for a career with plenty of potential?

“SW 4999: Learn about Social Work as a Lifelong Career,” will be offered for the first time winter quarter to help guide persons considering social work for a career. The hybrid course – open to all - will meet from 4-5:50 p.m. each Tuesday. Anyone may enroll.

This new undergraduate course will introduce the nature of the social work profession to guide students in making an informed decision whether this is a career path that meets their goals, according to Evaon Wong-Kim, chair of social work. Topics will include employment opportunities to those who earn a Master’s Degree in Social Work, the nature of their work, and how social workers help achieve social justice in our communities.

Space is limited; CSUEB students may enroll during the regular enrollment period beginning Nov. 8. All others may enroll Jan. 11-18, 2011 through Open University.
