Social Work

Welcome to the Social Work Program at Texas Southmost College!

WarburtonMartha Warburton, M.S.W.

Texas Southmost College offers an Associate of Arts in Social Work (AASW). Students who complete this 2-year program successfully have the option to seek employment or to continue their education. Students pursuing the AASW learn foundational social work concepts in courses designed to develop a strong foundation in social work values and ethics. Courses emphasize critical thinking skills and problem-solving skills. Our program includes volunteer hours in local community agencies, where students learn through active service.

The Associate of Arts in Social Work prepares students to work with a variety of populations such as children, families, the aged, or the homeless. Students might work as an entry-level worker in a large state agency or as a social service assistant in agencies such as a senior citizens program, a food bank, a community service center, a program for youth or the homeless, or a large government agency.

The Associate of Arts in Social Work is excellent preparation for transfer to an accredited undergraduate program in order to complete a Bachelor of Social Work or to transfer to a Bachelor of Arts program in a field related to social service.
