Social workers typically specialize in four areas: 1. children, family and school; 2. mental health and substance abuse; 3. medical and public health; and 4. policy and planning. There are specific college class requirements for each – some majors will take more psychology and economics courses while others will focus on biology and speech – and these concentrations can be further customized with a second major like a foreign language.
