Emma Lowther

MSW Class of 2023

Why did you choose to pursue an MSW degree? To become a therapist

Why did you choose BYU's Social Work Program? I chose BYU's Social Work Program because of its clinical focus and internship opportunities.

What are your thoughts on BYU's focus on a spiritually strengthening educational experience? I didn't fully appreciate BYU's focus on being a spiritually strengthening educational experience at the beginning of the MSW program, but looking back, I am grateful for it.

How did BYU's MSW program prepare you for your career? It helped me gain the skills necessary to engage clients as a competent therapist.

What are your career goals? Become an LCSW and registered play therapist and work at a private practice. I would also love to teach college classes about psychology or social work.

Tell us about your BYU internship experience(s): I loved my internship experiences at BYU. I had excellent supervision and had the opportunity to intern at two sites that helped me gain very different therapy skill sets.
