Question by amy2188us: psychology versus social work?
I still confused which major should I go for consideration for graduate school. I have planned to take (school) psychology, but I also interested with social work. I love people and love to work with people, but my preference is working with kids (like elementary to middle school level). I’m just confused on knowing what the difference between the two are. Like in terms of careers, which field would have more options for job opportunities? Can you please explain and what the differences between psychology and social work? and in terms of applying to graduate school, which field needs to take the standardized testing (psychology?) what about social work? what about PhD programs? i just want some examples and it would help me make my decision easier b/c registration for GRE psych is about to be over soon in a few days so i want to make sure i’m making the right decision in terms of picking a field for graduate school.

Well first off i think you should go in the direction of psycho therapy. Therapist talk to there patients, as psychologist you are mainly there to ask a few questions and prescribe medications. Social working is more interactive with people,adults, children etc, you get to know a person more.
