For more information, contact the Social Science and Education division at 615-230-3231.

This pathway focuses study on skills useful for work in fields of public service (community case management, substance abuse counseling, etc.), such as counseling, technology, writing and communications, client assessment, and community organizing.  With an A.S. degree, positions with social service agencies and non-profit organizations are available.  One can apply, with professional certification, for entry-level, assistant social worker positions in case management or counseling care teams. This degree can act as a springboard into bachelor’s degrees in social work. 

Transfer Options
Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTPs) are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university or select regionally accredited, non-profit, Tennessee private colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. The TTPs also constitute an agreement between community colleges and four-year colleges/universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution.  Note:  Due to the transferability to a four-year institution, there are to be no course substitutions where a specific course is required in the TTP curriculum guide.  

All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the E-Proficiency Profile (EPP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at https://www.volstate.edu/graduation/exit-exams.
