Social Work Completion Program
The Social Work Degree Completion Program was developed to provide an opportunity for community college graduates and individuals who currently work in the field of humans services to complete their degree in social work. Depending on the enrollment, weekend and evening classes occur when there are enough degree completion students, otherwise, classes are primarily held in the day and evening. Understanding the time constraints non-traditional students face with work,
family and school, the new Program has been designed with flexibility, accessibility and affordability in mind.
Classes are held on Saturdays except for winter break sessions when classes are offered on weeknights and one Saturday. All Saturday classes run from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm under the accelerated schedule where classes meet twice a month. Classes are held at the Anna Maria College Paxton campus.
