This comprehensive guide suggests ways to implement programs for social service workers who are seeking their Associate of Arts or Associate of Applied Science degree. It is intended for faculty and administrators of post-secondary institutions and professional workers and employers. The objectives of the publication are to: (1) identify commonalities found in the social services and establish a sequence of learning experiences; (2) provide a curriculum that will prepare students either for further education or immediate employment; (3) improve articulation between 2- and 4-year institutions and graduate schools; and (4) inform colleges, agencies, civil service, and merit systems of the abilities of the AA graduate and suggest that new job classifications be made. The guide discusses: (1) the background and context of social service careers, (2) general administrative considerations, (3) the program, curriculum, and course outlines, and (4) needed physical facilities and educational resources.
