Professional Opportunities Galore
"UW-Green Bay has prepared me for my future career in social worker by offering incredible internship opportunities. I was able to intern at a local school district throughout my senior year of my social work degree. This opportunity allowed me to network with individuals and for relationships with students that I will remember for a lifetime. UW-Green Bay also allowed me to facilitate my social work skills in every classroom setting I was placed in, with the help of some really amazing instructors that I cannot thank enough."
