Why Study Social Work?

As social workers you will be on the front lines of advocacy for social and economic justice. You can choose to be active in a venue ranging from a local neighborhood to global resettlement, and to work with any conceivable population from infants in early intervention programs all the way up through hospice. You can choose to combine roles as clinicians, researchers, policy wonks, administrators, advocates, and community organizers. Just about any population you want to work with, any social problem you would like to solve, or any level on which you want to make change, a social work degree will allow you to pursue your dream to realize social change. At Stony Brook you will prepare to work in the future – to learn to intervene at the source of the problems which impact people’s well-being; to study within interdisciplinary collaborations with students from other disciplines; and to build a world in which there is social and economic justice leading to success for all.
