Social Services AAS

The Associate of Applied Science in Social Services prepares students for careers with social service agencies. This program meets the immediate need for trained service personnel to more than 15 agencies in a 50-mile radius. Upon completion of the program, students can go to work at a higher rate of pay in direct service jobs or choose to continue their education.

Holding an associate degree in social services may enable the student to work as an assistant to professionals in the field, who hold more advanced degrees. Some examples of positions for which a student might qualify include case management aide, social work assistant, community outreach worker, youth worker, gerontology aide, client advocate or psychologist's aide. Students will be assessed against the Social Work Code of Ethics and the Council for Social Work Education. Students will be provided with hands on curriculum and assess their skills based on the above standards. Students will complete an internship the last semester prior to graduation. This internship will be inclusive of all skills learned throughout the program. Students must pass a background check prior to field placement.  For more information about this program, contact Kelli White at This email address is being protected from spambots.
