  • Find an accredited social work program at a nearby college. Earn your Bachelor's degree in Social Work. Check with your state to see if you will need a Master's degree. Some states require that you have a Master's before you can work as a social worker others just require a Bachelor's degree, however, you will get paid more money with a Master's.

  • You will need at minimum a 4 year degree in Sociology or Psychology, and with the latter, a Master's Degree in social work ("MSW"), before you will be able to work with people.
