Description:
The Pre-Social Work Transfer Pathway AS offers students a powerful option: the opportunity to complete an Associate of Science degree with course credits that directly transfer to designated Social Work bachelor’s degree programs at Minnesota State universities*.

All courses in the Transfer Pathway associate degree will directly transfer and apply to the designated bachelor’s degree programs in a related field.
Students planning to transfer outside of the Minnesota State System are advised to consult with their intended transfer institution to determine transferability of the courses in this curriculum.

Students need to complete the entire 40-credit Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) as well as elective credits to reach 60 credits for the A.S. Pre-Social Work Transfer Pathway. One course may meet more than one MnTC Goal Area, however, credits can only be counted once.

* To complete the Pre-Social Work Transfer Pathway, students must complete at least three courses from three different disciplines in MnTC Goal Areas 5 and Goal Areas 6. MnTC Goal Area 5 will be satisfied by WGSS 1140 or AMST 1132, PSYC 1110 and PSCI 1101.  When completing MnTC Goal Area 6, one course should also meet MnTC Goal Area 8.

All students pursuing this award should work closely with their advisor to ensure proper selection of required program courses, if applicable program electives, required Minnesota Transfer Curriculum courses, and MnTC electives. You are expected to meet with your advisor on a regular basis to ensure courses are taken in an order that will lead to efficient and successful completion of the required coursework.
