Welcome to the Social Work & Human Services Program

The Social Work and Human Services program offers certificates, associate degrees, and transfer pathways to higher degrees in the human services and addiction field. Our programs can be completed in as little as two years and provide educational training designed to prepare students for careers as human service professionals.

With a certificate or associate degree in Social Work and Human Services, you are prepared for careers in

  • Drug and Alcohol Treatment
  • Housing and Basic Needs Services
  • Harm Reduction Advocacy & Support
  • Family & Community Support Agencies
  • Mental Health Services
  • Senior Support Services
  • Disability Support Agencies
  • Youth Services

Local human service agencies seek SRJC Social Work and Human Services graduates when hiring because of the quality of preparation our students bring.

We offer an emphasis in Addiction Studies or Advocacy. Students may also transfer to four-year universities in related majors.

The addiction studies emphasis is accredited by the California Association for Alcohol/Drug Educators preparing students specifically for careers as Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) counselors in the State of California. 

The Social Work & Human Services Program is located in the Student Services Division of Santa Rosa Junior College. The Counseling Department maintains the program.
