Social Welfare - Minor
The Social Welfare minor provides a comprehensive understanding of the social issues facing individuals, social systems, policy, and social constructs impacting the welfare of people in the U.S. and abroad. The minor will expand students' knowledge of the societal and structural values and practices that impact the welfare of people. Students learn about practice issues facing social workers in the coming years related to social welfare. A minor in social welfare is not accepted by the Council on Social Work Education as preparation for beginning level generalist social work practice. A minor is offered for a student's own learning in the area of social welfare and social services. Students are advised to speak to a member of the Department of Social Work for more information.
This minor is offered in the College for Women and College for Adults.
