This post was inspired by a search engine term that took someone to this blog. They searched ‘everything thats in a social work degree’. I have to say, this took me back to when I was thinking about studying social work as quite obviously it was the content that made me want to pursue the course. I remember I applied for social work at a number of universities, and ‘youth work with public health‘ at another. My enthusiasm for community work, engaging groups of people, voluntary participation and informal education prompted my second course choice, but ultimately social work was the career for me.
