Social Work students learn to provide professional services for emotionally, economically or socially disadvantaged persons.

This introductory level program will acquaint students to the multi-faceted, multi-skilled Social Work profession. Students learn issues in the provision of services to emotionally, economically, mentally or socially disadvantaged persons. The program also requires internships where the student will learn to apply and further understand theoretical frameworks discussed in class.

Transfer Information

Due to numerous possibilities, it is suggested that students consult the Social Work Academic Advisor for information on how the higher education institutions accept credits for a given class. For specific information, contact the institution in which the transfer of credit is desired.
Social Work AS
“The Social Work AS program alone does not lead to professional licensure.  This program prepares students for application and transfer to other programs of study that could eventually lead to professional licensure.  Professional licensure requirements vary from state-to-state.  Here is one suggested website for researching state licensure requirements: License Finder sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor.  If you have difficulty finding the licensure requirements for your state or intended profession, please contact your academic advisor or SLCC’s state authorization coordinator for help.”
