 The Social Service Profession minor is designed to augment majors in the helping profession like sociology, psychology or criminal justice.  The minor teaches engagement, assessment, advocacy, and intervention skills.  Students will complete an internship of approximately 100 hours providing the minors an opportunity to “get their feet wet” in a population or setting in which they are interested.


The program outcomes for the Social Service Profession minor are:

1. To introduce the profession of social work to a student
2. To articulate the career opportunities  in the profession of social work.
3. A basic use of the knowledge, values and skills of the  profession of social work
