SOCIAL WORK MINOR

Interested in the well-being of others….

Combine your sociology, psychology, political science, public health, nursing, anthropology, or global studies major with the study of complex social problems, social welfare systems, social services, and professional social work courses. A minor in social work will prepare you to pursue a career in the growing and high-demand profession of social work.

Where a background in social work can take you
The social work minor develops practitioners, advocates, leaders, and scholars to serve vulnerable populations.

PUTTING SOCIAL WORK TO WORK

Beyond the basic

As a complement to your major area of study, the minor in social work will enhance your theoretical and practical knowledge and prepare you for acceptance into an Masters in Social Work program for those who wish to pursue a career in counseling or social services.
