Bachelor of Science in Human Services
The Human Services program is an interdisciplinary liberal arts degree that draws heavily from the disciplines of sociology and psychology. Our graduates gain the attitudes, values, knowledge, and skills for employment or advanced study in the art and science of care.
The Human Services program rises above traditional concepts of social services or social work. Our program uses an asset or strengths-based approach to working with individuals, families, and communities. We help students be successful in the traditional social services as well as the expanding non-social services arenas. Our graduates will be able to more effectively manage non-profit organizations, deliver direct care as a human service professional and have the skills to assist in building informal networks of care.
The curriculum is designed to give graduates the knowledge, dispositions, and skills that encourage depth of understanding, tolerance of others, and individual accountability. For more detailed information about the Human Services Program click here.
