What Can I Study


Social Work - It's one of the fastest growing careers in the United States. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that employment will grow faster than average for social work positions.

Minors:

Child Welfare - The Child Welfare minor is designed for students interested in better understanding the care and protection of children in today's society. It introduces students to issues specific to children, from developmental, environmental, and social work perspectives. It is an appropriate minor for any student who will be working in roles that involve protecting vulnerable children.

Gerontology - The Gerontology minor is designed for students interested in working with the aging population. The minor offers students exposure to a range of aging concepts that will prepare them to work with an increasingly aging population. It is an appropriate minor for any student who will be working with older adults in his or her career.

Social Welfare - The Social Welfare minor prepares students interested in better understanding social welfare systems in which they may work. The minor offers information on organizations, social policies, and service provision as viewed from a systems perspective.
