This minor is only available to students who are not majoring in Social Work.
The social welfare of societies, communities, workplaces and families must remain a strong priority. And people like you are needed to analyze, advocate and address the programs in place. Our well-versed faculty will guide you in a thorough approach to social welfare. You’ll gain knowledge of different society groups and their needs — race and ethnic groups, the aging population and child welfare. You’ll even have the option to do extensive research on a particular passion you may have within social welfare. Combine this minor with a Law, Justice and Society major and you’ll be set to change the communities around you within a legal platform. Or, take these concepts into non-government industries and improve welfare systems and quality of life for organizations.
