The Social Work program prepares students for entry-level positions in one of the many types of social work. It also provides the academic foundation needed for students who wish to continue their studies in social work at the graduate level. Students who complete the Bachelor of Social Work degree are eligible to take the exam for Texas state licensure as a baccalaureate social worker (LBSW).
The Sociology program focuses on the study of human relations, social processes, and how our society operates. Students who complete a BA or BS degree in Sociology are prepared to pursue employment in non-profit agencies, policy development, human resources, or urban planning. The Sociology degree also provides the knowledge base needed for students to pursue graduate studies in sociology, medicine, law, ministry, or social services.
The Criminal Justice program prepares students to become agents of social change within their chosen communities. Students who complete a BA or BS degree in Criminal Justice engage in research and hands-on experiences that prepare them for employment or continuing study at the graduate level for careers in policing, investigations, law, or corrections.
