Psychology / Social Work

Stratford's Psychology/Social Work course was designed to introduce students to the field of social work as well as help them gain a deeper understanding of social psychology.

Becoming a social worker usually involves getting a college degree. So, before you spend thousands of dollars on expensive college tuition, let Stratford first help you learn about the detailed work involved in a variety of social work careers.

This interesting and comprehensive course can help you determine if working toward becoming a social worker is something you might enjoy. The straight-forward curriculum could also help you gain knowledge that could be applied in your every day life.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median annual salary for social and human service assistants is $35,960. The number of jobs is projected to increase by 17% through 2029, which is much faster than average.*
