Social Work

There are many free, online classes for students who want to learn about social work. These classes do not typically award students credit and are meant to provide students access to higher education.
The social work classes below are much like the standard classes offered at universities and allow students access to real course materials, such as assignments, essays, readings, videos and lectures. Since the classes do not award credit, students are not required to submit assignments or complete exams. All of the classes can be completed at the student's own pace, giving students the freedom to study how they want to study.

Social workers are committed professionals who work in partnership with individuals, families and groups experiencing marginalization, disadvantage or social difficulties. This course will give you a thorough knowledge and understanding of what social work is, the skills needed to be a social worker, and what social workers do.

There are also video and audio based case studies which will help you further enhance your understanding during this social work online course.
ALISON's free Diploma in Social Work Studies online course is ideal for professionals who are already in a health-related or care-giving occupation and who want to learn more about social work, and for learners who are interested in social work as a career.
