Recommended basic skills standards are

This program provides the first two years for transfer students who wish to pursue a career in social work or the human services field. Because of different requirements at four-year institutions, it is important that students work with advisors. Students planning to transfer to CSU-Pueblo should directly follow the plan below. Students transferring to Metro State University must consult with their program advisor, as Metro State has a slightly different articulation agreement.

NOTE: To be employed in the social work field it is expected that you will be able to pass background checks. This will include fingerprinting for the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and a Central Registry Inquiry.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the Social Work Transfer program, students should be able to:

  • Explain and discuss matters of inequality impacting various demographic groups based on gender, power, culture, religion, and sexuality
  • Distinguish the various social service agencies available in the community and contrast how each unique service can meet the needs of unique individuals and their circumstances
  • Construct a warranted conclusion by recognizing assumptions, interpreting data, evaluating evidence, and examining implications
  • Assess issues affecting their communities from a variety of perspectives

Content criteria, competencies, and student learning outcomes associated with the general education courses required for this degree can be found on the Colorado Department of Higher Education website.
