Social Work

Now More Than Ever

Social workers are a critical part of our communities who help the most vulnerable improve their lives. With the well-known reputation of a Ferris Social Work degree, you will have the skills and practical knowledge to create positive change.

Our comprehensive, practice-based approach will equip you with the knowledge and experience into a diverse spectrum of social work areas including child welfare, gerontology, working with people living with disabilities and mental health, and research. With at least 600 hours of hands-on experience in the field, you can apply what you're learning in the classroom the very next day to help those in need and make the world a better place.
