The primary purpose of the Minor in Social Work is to complement a student’s major. The Minor in Social Work does not prepare the student for social work practice but introduces them to the social work perspective and the profession’s guiding mission (improving individual, family, community, and social well-being and pursuing social justice).

Students completing the Minor in Social Work DO NOT apply to the Professional Sequence and do not take Professional Sequence courses, which are limited to majors admitted to the Professional Sequence only.
