Academics

In today’s fast-paced, complex society, there is a vital need for compassionate, professional social workers. If you major in Social Service, you will learn the skills necessary to work at daycare centers, mental health agencies, institutions for physically and mentally handicapped persons, prisons, hospitals, and substance abuse agencies.

This program allows students to tap into their natural ability to interact with others, and that capacity is refined into a valuable skill with rewarding professional opportunities. Students receive the practical and theoretical education necessary for success, professionally or at a four-year college.
