For those looking to become a social worker, an advanced degree is an important part of advancing your career and establishing yourself as a trusted, qualified provider of social services. While each state sets its own requirements for licensure, most require a Master of Social Work degree. While some social work jobs are open to candidates with a bachelor’s degree, a Master of Social Work can provide job seekers a wider and richer array of opportunities.
