The University of South Carolina is creating a program to train social workers to work with military personnel, according to this article in the Aiken Standard.

“There is a growing need for social workers in this field,” said Nancy Brown, an associate professor at the University of South Carolina College of Social Work.

The program is in its final stage of academic approval. The course could prepare 3,000 social workers for the field in the next decade, dean Anna Scheyett said.
