Prepare for a major in Social Work and Human Services by taking recommended courses
to fulfill the requirements of a transfer degree.
The field of social work promotes human growth and development through education, public health, human welfare and social justice. Professionals in this field typically connect individuals and families with resources to meet basic needs and improve the quality of life. Professionals who focus on Social Work typically interact directly with clients to carry out social programs, connect them with services, assess their needs and provide counseling. Those who specialize in Human Services take a more administrative or managerial focus aimed at planning programs to serve the needs of a particular population.
