Social work is a broad interdisciplinary field of study that uses concepts from management, social sciences, economics, education, communications and psychology. An online Social Work degree from McKinley College gives students the skills to work with children, help the elderly, find resources for those in need, and contribute to social policy change.
The curriculum aims to prepare graduates for careers in nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government institutions, schools, and community service departments. The courses focus on key concepts of social work such as multicultural issues, child and adult problems, sociology, welfare, public relations, and psychology.
The courses give students the needed understanding of behaviors and social welfare programs to enter the field of social work with the knowledge and skills to communicate between the general public, doctors, officials, and other administrative staff.
