Social Work Transfer

The Social Work transfer curriculum plan at NDSCS-Fargo is designed to prepare students with the general education and introductory courses necessary to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. 

Students will participate in both classroom and field experiences that are intended to provide a generalist-model foundation in helping people. The curriculum will also provide students with the skills, knowledge and abilities necessary to advance in their profession.

Upon completion, students will be awarded an Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Arts.
