The curriculum is designed for persons who plan to obtain an Associate of Science in Liberal Arts and Sciences (ASLAS) in Social Work at National Park College (NPC) and transfer to the University of Arkansas Little Rock (UALR) to complete a Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSW). Students should be aware that prerequisite courses and/or developmental courses may need to be taken in addition to this suggested plan of study.
See the NPU Transfer Center Coordinator for assistance.
