The Minor

Social Welfare

The minor in social welfare is primarily intended for students who plan to enter a human services related field or who are simply interested in social work because of its significance to modern society. It addresses major social problems and issues that challenge the helping professions. The social welfare minor is designed for students interested in the general social welfare field who do not plan to enter into professional social work practice. It consists of 15 semester hours of social work to include SCWK 200, SCWK 305, SCWK 306, SCWK 321 and 3 credit hours of additional social work courses.
