The transfer program in human services is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution and major in social work. In recent years, students have transferred successfully to Hood College, Shepherd University, Shippensburg University, Salisbury University, and  University System of Maryland at Hagerstown. This program has articulation agreements with Shippensburg University and Salisbury University. Students should always confer with advisors and transferring institutions for specific requirements as these are subject to change.

  • View the Human Services Fact Sheet.
  • Please see HST Coordinator to discuss how the HST degrees meet the requirements of the state of Maryland for certification as a Drug and Alcohol Counselor Trainee under Option A.
