Social Work, Minor

The minor in social work prepares students with an introduction to the social work profession and social welfare, as well as professional values, ethics, fields of practice, and settings in which social workers are employed. A minor in social work complements a major in nearly any field, including psychology, business, social sciences, or fine arts.

The 15-credit minor also explores human behavior in the family environment and current social policies and systems. Students may also choose electives on various topics, including alcohol and substance abuse, legal and ethical issues, child and family welfare, and gerontology.
