Minor in Social Work

Angelo State University’s minor in social work is grounded in the person-to-environment prospective. Courses in the minor provide students with an understanding of people who may require social services.

Our courses complement today’s outcome-based social service environment and will expose students to:

  • Biopsychosocial theories of human behavior
  • Assessment and evaluation methods
  • Micro- and macro-level intervention techniques

This minor is highly applied and structured and provides exposure to the social work profession.

Required Courses

The social work minor consists of 18 semester credit hours (SCH), including these required courses in social work (SWK): 

  • 2307 Introduction to Social Work
  • 2317 Social Welfare Policy and Practice
