    Thinking about choosing a sociology undergraduate degree then if at the end of the course I still want to do social work as a career, study social work at a masters (postgraduate). Do you think thats a good idea or should I just study social work at undergraduate level? Thank you

    Yes, I think that is a good idea. I don't see much point in doing social work as an undergraduate degree unless you are 100% sure that it's what you want to do as a career. How sure are you?

    Social Policy might be a happy medium between the theory heavy Sociology and the entirely practical nature of Social Work.
