Program Description

This Social Work transfer major provides education and training that promotes social and economic justice and strengthens individual, family, and community well-being.  The generalist curriculum consists of courses in social work practice including human behavior and social environment, psychopathology and addiction, social welfare policy and services, and diversity, privilege and oppression.  Most Social Work Associate Degree graduates transfer to a four-year university to complete a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW).  Several well-established articulation/transfer agreements through which students can complete their BSW degree are available. Because Social Work is a licensed profession, jobs are plentiful. Most graduates are employed in a variety of settings including welfare agencies, schools, hospitals, clinics, mental health institutions, community centers, public health, corrections, and group homes.
