    More specifics would be helpful on this...

    It might vary from state to state. I live in Wisconsin, so I'll use that. There are many jobs you can do that do social worker-related things, that won't pay well, but you don't need a degree to do them. However, to actually call yourself a social worker in the state of WI and be certified you need to have a bachelor's degree or higher IN Social Work. A social work major will have practicums/field work as part of their placement, so they will be doing real-life work, kind of like an internship. That will help you to be trained to go right into work when you graduate. Hopefully that helps a little. It's also helpful to look at job descriptions (try monster.com) of things you'd be interested in doing - look at the qualifications and education required to see what you'd need to do!
