Careers and Internships

Careers:

FSW faculty are experienced at helping our students achieve their career goals.

The following charts, developed by the career planning staff at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, are helpful in showing what types of careers you can go into with a degree in social work or family science.


Additionally, Miami provides resources to help students decide what careers they wish to pursue and how to effectively look for a job or an internship. Please visit the Center for Career Exploration and Success for additional information.

Internships:

Both family science and social work majors are required to complete a field experience as part of their program. FSW enjoys good connections with a wide range of community agencies. Whether you are interested in working in an urban or rural setting or with pre-school youngsters, the elderly, or teenagers, FSW can help you find a suitable placement.
