An associate degree in social work will prepare you to become a social work assistant. In these programs students learn how to manage case paperwork and support social workers in finding services for clients. The bachelor's degree is required to work as a direct-service social worker. These programs cover topics like human behavior, the social welfare system, and client interviewing. A master's degree is required to become a clinical social worker. These programs take two to three years to complete and require a year-long internship in a social work setting. These social workers learn how to diagnose and treat mental health disorders in patients. A doctorate can be a useful degree if you want to become a manager or administrator in a social service organization.
