Social Welfare
A minor in social welfare will provide students with the knowledge and values of social justice and practice that will equip them to function well in their chosen profession. The courses offered in the minor will acquaint students in majors and pre-professional programs that interface with social work (e.g., sociology, psychology, anthropology, health science, education, criminal justice, counseling, business, pre-law, sports, recreation) with the evolution of the social welfare structure in the United States (SWK 242), the policies that result in social welfare programs (SWK 342) and populations at particular risk (SWK 307 and SWK 348/349).
