Careers

Uniting passion with lifelong purpose.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, social work employment is expected to increase through 2022. The aging baby boom generation is driving the demand for gerontology social workers. Likewise, the need for social workers specializing in substance abuse and medical and public health is predicted to rise.

Graduates of the Simmons School of Social Work are among the most prepared and sought-after professionals ready to meet these needs.
