Welcome to the Human Services Program!
The Human Services major prepares students for careers in social change by providing students with the theoretical and skill-based background necessary to practice in micro, mezzo, and macro arenas (with individuals, programs, and policies).
Students take academically rigorous courses relevant to the field while honing their skills through our extensive experiential educational opportunities. Through courses, service-learning, co-op and internships, students acquire professional skills related to counseling, nonprofit management, political advocacy, and organizational and community development.
