About the Program
If you are interested in working with people to help improve their life circumstances, the Human Services major may be an excellent choice for you. Students in this major are concerned about today’s individuals and families and want to help them find solutions to challenging circumstances.
Human Services students are trained for a variety of careers in community-based programs, home-based programs, health-related social services, and mental health organizations. The Human Services option is designed to provide students with basic knowledge in human development and family studies, skills for working with people in service agencies, and program evaluation skills. Throughout the academic program, students develop knowledge and skills to work with children, adults and families.
With the help of their academic advisors, students select courses to meet the requirements of the major and their individual interests and needs. Students are prepared to serve their communities through internships, application of coursework and development of professional skills in the work force.
