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 practical skills that allow them to meet the needs of clients of all ages and backgrounds.

The culminating experience in this major is an internship with a human services agency. This internship is usually completed in the last or next-to-last semester of study, and can be done in the fall, spring, or summer semester.
