Social Services, A.S. (Gloucester, Online)

New Program, Same Great Education

*This program was formerly called Social Work. Beginning Fall 2021, no new students are able to join "Social Work," instead joining the Social Services program. Existing students in the Social Work program should speak with their advisor if there are any questions.

This program allows students to tap into their natural ability to interact with others, and that capacity is refined into a valuable skill with rewarding professional opportunities. Students receive the practical and theoretical education necessary for success, professionally or at a four-year college.

Program Goals
Students who have completed the program will be able to:
  • Demonstrate knowledge and acceptance of social work values and ethics.
  • Describe the social workers’ role within the social service field.
  • Implement a multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving intervention.
  • Locate, retrieve and critically evaluate information and information sources related to the profession.
