|PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: From time to time, all people need help. Helping others is the essence of human services.
As a student in our Human Services program, you will develop the foundational skills
and knowledge that support effective helping. Courses focusing on human services and
counseling skills are supported by liberal arts offerings including psychology and
sociology. Community-based agencies that serve the most vulnerable including children,
the poor, the elderly and the developmentally disabled host our students for field
trips, volunteer opportunities and as interns. These real-world experiences prepare
you for work directly in the field and/or transfer to complete a bachelor’s degree
in Social Work, Human Services and other related majors.
