Rewarding degrees in Social Work
The Social Work program prepares you to recognize the diversity of societal and geographic environments present in the region and beyond. Here you will strive to promote social service professionalization through quality education and community service. The knowledge base of the program focuses on understanding the transaction between the person and society. Appreciating the values of the profession guides the student in developing appropriate attitudes necessary for the helping relationship. Practice skills result from both classroom and field experience. Development of the student’s self-awareness as an individual and as a social person is a prerequisite to developing skills in the use of the self as an agent of change. A programmed schedule, which outlines the sequence of required courses and elective options, is available and should be reviewed with an advisor from the program.
