In our department, your life after Ball State begins in your senior year. Your field practicum gives you an up-close look at being a full-time social worker. You will tackle real problems and come up with real solutions, all of which are things you will need as you start your career.

Not only does our program prepare you for work, we also provide you with the skills you need to pursue a master’s degree in social work. With everything you’ve learned in and out of the classroom, you will walk away prepared for whatever road you decide to take.

Ball State alumni have found success in a range of agencies, including school systems, hospitals, and in the nonprofit sector. Find out more about social work career options.
