The Human Services major is an academically rigorous program that prepares students for careers in social change. The mission of the Human Services program is to provide students with the theoretical and skill-based background necessary to practice in macro, mezzo, and micro arenas.
A Human Services student will take courses that are applicable and relevant to the field while honing their skills through our extensive experiential educational opportunities. Through courses, service-learning, co-op and the internship program, students are prepared to work in various capacities including: direct service, counseling, organizational development, political advocacy, community development and nonprofit management.
