About Master of Social Work at Keuka College
To be a social worker is to help people overcome some of life’s most difficult challenges. Taking into account the strengths and needs of individuals, families, and communities, social workers help restore and improve social and emotional functioning. This ultimately works toward the goal of creating positive conditions for people to thrive. As a Keuka College Master of Social Work student, you’ll build upon the generalist foundation garnered from your undergraduate experience with a more in-depth, analytical understanding of human behavior, theory, policy and diversity. As a result, you will be prepared with the knowledge and skills to effectively engage in clinical practice and leadership roles.
A Master of Social Work degree opens the door to clinical jobs in a multitude of settings, including healthcare, non-profit organizations, child welfare, criminal justice institutions, Veterans Administration, and eventually starting your own private practice (if desired). Our clinical degree permits you to do more then individual, family, and group therapy. Graduates are also qualified to supervising social work trainees, conduct research, and make an impact on important societal issues through advocacy and various contributions to the profession.
Together, all social workers can make a difference and help our families and communities cope with the stresses of everyday life.
