The need for social workers has never been higher. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the field of social work is projected to grow by 16% during the next 10 years–faster than most other occupations.
During the past five years, Edinboro MSW students have completed internships in 39 states, plus Canada, South Korea and St. Lucia as part of their degree program.
"I did not have a BSW degree and I could not be happier with the education, the leadership and the social work competencies and values that I received at Edinboro. Because of my degree I work full time as a social worker for County Human Services in Behavioral Health and APS, and a part-time hospital social worker. I look forward to continuing my post graduate clinical work towards an LCSW license."
