What Students are Saying

As a child protective social worker and as a case manager for older adults I had always seen my social work career as a way to provide direct services to individuals and groups who needed support. My experience at George Mason opened my eyes to the full range of opportunities available to me to effect change on a much larger scale. I still view my advocacy role as helping individuals but now, the reality is, that I can help create positive changes for thousands and thousands of individuals at a time.
