(Brainerd, MN) — Central Lakes College of Brainerd and Staples will be adding Human Services A.A.S. degree to their vast array of programs beginning the Fall of 2021.

This news comes off the heels of recent data from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development showing the employment of social and human services assistants is projected to grow 17 percent from 2019 to 2029. 

The Human Services AAS Degree will impact the region by providing a highly skilled workforce to support the health, growth and development of individuals within the region. These positions are critical to support individuals and families in maintaining and regaining health and developing new opportunities for individual and family advancement.

Central Lakes College also recently launched the Pre-Social Work Transfer Pathway A.S. Degree. With that degree, students can take their first two years of the major at CLC, saving time and money, and then transfer to any Minnesota State university with junior status.For more information on the major and classes this Fall, visit the Central Lakes College website.
