Pre-Social Work Transfer Track
  • Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS)

If you want to make a difference in people’s lives, consider a career in social work.

Social work is a vast field comprised of interdisciplinary specialists and generalists who work together to serve the basic needs of people. Social work professionals focus on prevention and remediation of problems while maintaining a commitment to improving the overall quality of life of service populations.

FVCC’s Pre-Social Work transfer track articulates with the University of Montana-Missoula’s Bachelor of Social Work program. Students who complete the transfer agreement requirements are well-prepared for upper-division coursework at UM and have the opportunity to work with a distance-learning cohort to complete many program courses requirements. Talk with an FVCC academic advisor for more information about this transfer articulation opportunity.


  • Upon completing a bachelor’s degree in social work, graduates may find employment in mental health centers, welfare agencies, employment services, rehabilitation, parole, aftercare, outreach, and various public and private social service agencies.
  • Students who complete the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program at the University of Montana are eligible to apply for UM’s accelerated, one-year Master’s of Social Work (MSW) program.
