Overview of the Program

The various programs are designed to prepare students for entry-level employment in Human Service Organizations, as well as to upgrade and enhance the knowledge and skill set of current employees in the profession.

The Human Service Programs also provide a basis for future academic training leading to advanced degrees in Human Services, Social Work, Counseling, Psychology, Sociology, and Behavioral Analysis.
