  • Human Services Degrees

    Associate (AS) and Bachelor’s (BS) Degree Programs in Human Services

    Our Human Services degrees develop practitioners who are educated, ethical thinkers who can apply their knowledge to serving others in various aspects of society. Human services professionals work with both children and adults who are undergoing crisis or chronic situations. They are needed in a variety of settings, such as social service agencies, mental health and substance abuse treatment facilities, domestic abuse shelters, community centers, and more.

    The Associate Degree in Human Services prepares students for entry level positions in this rewarding field. Students in the Associate program receive real-world experience by completing a supervised field placement. The Bachelor’s degree in Human Services builds on this with an additional field placement, giving students even more hands-on experience in the field. Bachelor’s students graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to seek employment in a variety of management and leadership. Graduates of both programs are professionals who can meet the needs of diverse communities with integrity and sensitivity, and are prepared for further education and lifetime learning.

    Employment in this area is projected to grow 21% from 2015 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. The expansion of the adult day care system, growth in group homes and residential care facilities, and the accommodation for people who are handicapped or mentally ill, emphasizes the need for qualified professionals with a degree in Human Services. Additionally, as health care and government agencies place more value on prevention as opposed to treatment, Human Services graduates can expect to benefit from increased funding for treatment programs in both the public and private sectors.
