Social Work

The profession of social work is devoted to helping people function optimally in their environment by providing direct and indirect services to individuals, families, groups, and communities, and by working to improve social conditions. Bachelor's degree programs in Social Work prepare students for careers in public and private agencies such as child welfare, mental health, corrections, shelters, and many other workplaces. Community college students interested in completing bachelor's degrees in social work are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts degree prior to transfer. Students interested in clinical social work must obtain a master's in social work then state licensure. Students should consult Academic Advising about the particular social work baccalaureate program for specific entry requirements. Since admission is usually competitive, completion of these courses alone does not guarantee admission.

Students who have already chosen the university to which they plan to transfer should consult that institution's catalog or department advisor and an SVCC academic advisor in planning their program. Transfer guides for some universities are available at svcc.edu/transfer.
