School of Human Services
A degree in community and human services expands your understanding of human needs, values, and social conditions and helps you develop the expertise to build and maintain healthy individuals and communities.
The School of Human Services is committed to preparing students to advocate for social justice, and work effectively with marginalized, underserved, and vulnerable populations. We are also committed to integrating diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging into the learning experience.
The School of Human Services encompasses concentrations in the helping professions – a wide range of career fields that serve people and populations, including:
- Children and Families
- Senior Citizens
- Immigrants and Refugees
- Mental Illness
- And those in the criminal justice system
There are also a wide range of human service organizations that focus on areas such as employment, food and nutrition, health and wellness, youth development, and foster care and adoption.
Our faculty have extensive field experience ranging from direct service to program evaluation. They continuously work to develop initiatives and programs that are current in the field, such as our B.S. in addiction studies.
