 What's special about program?

San Antonio College is the only college to offer an A.A.S program and a Level II Case Management Certificate, in the Alamo Colleges. Our faculty are professional social workers who bring a wealth of experiences and compassion to the classroom. We take pride great pride in not only teaching social work, but being the face of social workers. While the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) does not currently accredit 2 year programs, we strive to meet accreditation standards by aligning our program with CSWE standards.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
