Social work is the study of social and economic well-being, where students learn how to recognize and respond to social problems and are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to help individuals, families, or communities. Students who are interested in understanding the society and want to pursue careers as social workers, researchers, social planners, or clinicians should opt to study social work.
Social Work is offered under the School of Social Sciences at Thames. Studying under the School of Social Sciences will give you a hands-on experience with working within the society, with exposure to the work field through internships and opportunities for social work. Students will become proficient in research, writing, and communication, to whom creating and expressing ideas will become a habit, after being involved in the courses offered at Thames.
