This curriculum is the first two years of a four-year program and is designed to give students a basic general education background and an introduction to the field of social work. Social workers may be employed in the areas of family services, child welfare, schools, medicine and psychiatry, or probation and parole. This program is especially designed to transfer to baccalaureate institutions in the state of Indiana. Baccalaureate institutions that are accredited by the Council on Social Work Education have strict admission standards. Students should become familiar with the criteria at the specific school to which they wish to transfer.
