Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs and Certificates

Human Services is a creative, innovative field for persons who work with, and give support to, other human beings. Students learn through a combination of classroom work and on-site performances, spending time in human services facilities. In addition to time spent in the classroom, students spend 285 hours in hospitals, mental health centers, social service agencies, substance-abuse counseling sites and other facilities. Graduates take positions as mental health workers, drug and alcohol workers, psychiatric technicians, social service interviewers, community organizers and personnel counselors. While this program is not designed for transfer, many graduates may make smooth transitions to Bachelor’s programs by working with their counselors and the members of the Human Services team.

Graduates of this program will be able to:

  • Serve Human Services clients or carry out other supportive human service agency functions
  • Explain the historical and philosophical foundation of Human Services
  • Identify human systems, discuss their interaction, and recognize the conditions that promote or limit optimal human functioning
  • Analyze service problems, select appropriate strategies, services, or interventions, and evaluate outcomes
  • Apply human service ethics, values, and attitudes in personal, educational, and professional settings with an understanding of cultural/ethnic diversity.
  • Evaluate their own values, personalities, reaction patterns, interpersonal styles, and limitations
