Please see Human Services for a recommended pathway.

To represent oneself as a social worker in Nebraska, the minimum requirement is a bachelor’s degree in social work from a program approved by the Council on Social Work (CSWE).  The Human Services program at WNCC prepares students to enter a bachelor’s program in social work by providing a solid foundation in the helping professions and social work activities/services. 

Chadron State College (CSC), which offers a CSWE accredited social work program, and WNCC have developed an articulation agreement through the Panhandle Advantage to ensure a smooth transfer between the two institutions. In addition, other students have successfully transitioned to other Nebraska colleges without difficulty and entered social work programs as third year (junior year) students.

If you are interested in pursuing a career in social work, please contact the Human Services faculty at 308.635.6783 to discuss your educational plans to ensure all prerequisites are met to transfer to the college or university of your choice.
