Maddie Galloway on Social Services
If you want to make a difference in the lives of your community our Social Services Transfer is for you. Social Services is a profession dedicated to helping people function to the best of their ability and help them understand their life situations. At Washington State, we offer a two-year baccalaureate preparation track. It is designed to give you the fundamental skills required for you to successfully transfer to a baccalaureate program at an accredited institution.
While enrolled in our classes, you will learn how to help individuals, groups, families, organizations, and communities enhance or restore their ability for social functioning and to generate societal conditions favorable to their goal. You will also learn to develop relationships with clients to help them understand their environment, make choices, and influence their life situations through organization and advocacy.
This is a two-year program that results in an Associates of Liberal Arts Transfer Degree. Graduates can begin working in the field upon successful completion of this program, however, it is specifically designed for those who wish to transfer into a Baccalaureate program.
