Human Services Program

DESCRIPTION

In the Human Services Program, students develop skills in the areas of supportive counseling, written and oral communication, assessment, planning, asset identification, and community organization.  The program provides a sound theoretical framework used to understand and assist people with differences including the sociology of deviance, disability, and service systems, while recognizing that methods for understanding and helping others are constantly evolving. Students can apply the skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom to real work situations via Practicum courses that require students to work in community settings under the supervision of professionals in the field.

The Human Services Program prepares students to enter occupations in public and private human services agencies; acquire skills and knowledge related to the student's current human services employment; and pursue further studies leading to advanced academic degrees and special certifications.
