Graduates of the A.A.S. program should qualify for positions in mental health, child care, family services, social services, rehabilitation, correction, and educational agencies.
A student must earn a grade of “C” or better in all HSE, PSY, ENG, CIS, and SAB prefix courses in order to progress in the program.

Prospective students should obtain additional information from a College counselor or program faculty member prior to seeking admission.
