This 105-hour non-credit certificate is for students who plan to pursue a career in community health or social work. This program is ideal for returning adult learners, folks who have been out of school for some time, new immigrants who are learning about how human service professions function in the United States, or those who are making a career shift into social work and human services. Students learn about the various roles community health workers have in our communities, create lasting connections with fellow-classmates, hear guest-talks given by local professionals in the field, clarify your own career goals, and become prepared for entering the for-credit program.
