Other information

The pace at which the online minor can be completed varies. It is recommended that the course of study occur over three semesters.

Often time individuals holding a social science degree obtain employment in human service or social work related fields. Although the minor does not meet the requirements for social work licensure, it would allow the student a stronger understanding of the human experience in the help seeking process and serves as a nice compliment to many other majors.
