For information contact Margaret Ann Rapp, PhD
The child welfare services minor is most directly associated with a major in one of the helping professions. Child welfare specialists handle the problems of abused, neglected, and abandoned children or those whose behavior has brought them to the attention of the courts. This type of work is demanding and requires highly trained and dedicated professionals for whom children and their families are of paramount importance.
A minor in child welfare services involves completion of a total of 15 credits in child welfare and related coursework. Social work majors who are pursuing the minor will complete the field practicum elective as part of their required coursework for the BSW degree. Note: Completion of this certificate program does not equate to certification.
