Minor in Social Work

The minor in Social Work requires 18 semester credit hours.  The minor helps students to increase their awareness of society's conditions, and many of the pressing needs facing children, families, and communities. The minor also explores the role of the social work profession in working with services and organizations seeking to help meet these children, family, and community needs. The goal is to help student growth in their chosen academic major fields. The minor does not prepare students for professional social work practice nor for state social work licensure.
