I'm realizing more and more how much I want to become a case worker. The only problem is that I pursued a degree in communications and not social work. What are the next steps in terms of reaching my goal and obtaining a job as a case worker?

I'm only two credits away from completing a degree in communications, my degree focuses on communicating with others in various settings rather than the media type of communications.
I have always been interested communications, but I'm realizing more and more that a job as a case worker is the type of job that I would really like to have. I've read about this type of position and it just 'clicked' with me because it felt like such a great fit based on my interests and type of personality. This career has always been something that I was interested in, but I had to rule it out because my marks weren't good enough to change majors and pursue a degree in social work.
I'm considering getting a second undergraduate degree, but I fear that I will be extremely burnt out and don't want to spend that much time in school.
I'm unsure about my options though. Is further education the only way that I can pursue a degree as a case worker? What are the next steps in terms of reaching my goal and working as a case worker?
