The focus of the human services field is to help people, families and communities. This interdisciplinary program provides the knowledge and skills to work in a variety of settings. Our students and alumni work with populations that include children and families, the elderly, immigrants, veterans, people with addictions, people with disabilities, people with mental illnesses, people who are/were incarcerated, or people who are homeless. Our students take part in applied, experiential learning that includes service learning projects and a one-semester field placement at a human service agency. The coursework and applied learning prepare our graduates for employment or graduate study.
This major emphasizes the multidisciplinary nature of human services by focusing on the mastery of concepts, theory and research from fields such as health, psychology, sociology, and communication. As a major, you will learn:
College is more than a classroom. Enhance your experience with extracurricular opportunities: Combine academic course work with out-of-class experiences that provide you direct contact with health and human service professionals. Such experiences include a well-developed internship program and independent study opportunities.
