The Human Services program prepares the student for a helping career in the human services field. The goal of this program is to prepare the student for their future employment as a human services generalist. Students who study human services typically should enjoy working with people. They are passionate about the potential for human growth and change. The students feel a commitment to improve the overall quality of people's lives. Their interests may also include advocating for social justice.

The Human Services Program provides a core course foundation that expands the student's basic knowledge and skills. The student will complete additional classes in psychology and sociology that allow them to focus and pursue their own special interests. Additional classwork will include studies in substance abuse, victim advocacy, disability services, and working with youth, families, and the elderly. Counseling courses develop the students' abilities to interview and assist clients in making changes in their lives. A field practicum placement allows the students to explore a human services career with a hands-on experience at a community human services agency setting.
