Insight, Exposure and Understanding: Building an Academic and Practical Foundation for Learning

Welcome! Our degree and certificate programs have been designed for students who want to acquire an academic foundation for working in the helping professions and to gain “hands on” practical experience with individuals, families and groups.

For students who plan to transfer to complete the requirements for a bachelor of arts degree in social work at one of the four Connecticut state universities, enrolling in the college’s Social Work Studies Transfer Ticket degree pathway program is a good choice. By entering this program, students are able to start their course work at MCC and take advantage of its high quality instruction and more affordable community college tuition and fees. Upon completion of the CSCU Pathway Transfer: Social Work Studies associate degree, students are guaranteed full junior status and can complete a bachelor’s degree in their major without losing any credits or being required to take extra credits or incur additional expenses.

In addition, MCC has developed excellent relationships with colleges and universities in Connecticut and the Northeast outside of the CSCU system to ensure that our students are able to transfer the maximum number of credits toward their degree. Students who are planning to transfer are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors or department chairs to discuss how MCC courses transfer to other institutions. More information on the transfer options available at MCC can be found in the Transfer Services portion of the website.

Graduates of the programs are prepared for entry-level employment in the social service field.
