The term “social services” refers to a broad spectrum of professional activities in the area of social service, education, and health. In an increasingly complex society, there is a need for trained personnel for community and group agencies, child-welfare programs, and medical and psychiatric services. Graduates are qualified for entry-level professional positions in nursing homes, sheltered-care workshops, mental health centers, state welfare agencies, or other social service organizations. Students completing the program should be able to communicate effectively with others, apply problem-solving techniques, and perform such tasks as gathering intake information and analyzing data.
