Never underestimate the power of a social work degree. That’s according to Chong-suk Han, an alumnus of Temple’s Master of Social Work program and associate professor of sociology at Middlebury College in Vermont. Han’s roots in social work remain strong, and he says hardly a day goes by when he doesn’t use the skills he learned in his Temple MSW courses.
“An MSW provides you with real skills in terms of how you deal with people, read a situation, learn to anticipate an environment and how people interact within that environment,” says Han. “It’s a phenomenally flexible degree.”
