Advising for Social Work Minor

The Social Work Minor is designed for students interested in augmenting their major with social work courses. Graduates with a Minor in Social Work are not considered social workers. However, employers may value the minor, particularly if the student is pursuing a career in a helping field. Students must earn a “C-” or above to earn credit for the social work courses in the minor. Students must formally apply to the minor. If you are interested in declaring Social Work as a minor please contact the Social Work Department, 303-556-3474, to schedule an appointment with an Advisor.
