About This Program
You know people face challenges in the world – maybe you’ve faced a few of them yourself. But unlike many, you feel a call to offer help. You want to show people how to help themselves, how to deal with the challenges they face and make their own lives better.
At SMCC, we can put you on that career path through our Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Studies with a focus in Social Work. The program prepares students to transfer to a baccalaureate program in social work or human services. The curriculum is built on a foundation of general education classes, supplemented with elective courses that focus heavily on relevant coursework with some specialization.
