Program Description

Code 242 - 62-63 Credits

The Human Services program utilizes a knowledge, skill, and value-based educational training program with an integration of psychology, social work, and advising. The human services worker is a generalist who holds professional and paraprofessional jobs in diverse settings. The primary purpose of the human services worker is to assist individuals, groups, and communities to function as effectively as possible. Some of the work settings include group homes and halfway houses; correctional, mentally disabled, and community mental health centers; family, child, and youth services agencies; and programs concerned with alcoholism, drug abuse, family violence, and aging. This curriculum leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Human Services and is designed for career-entry and/or educational advancement.
