Advocate for Positive Change in Your Professional Career

Do you have a passion to improve the lives of people in need? With a Human Services major, you’ll be prepared to become a “helping professional.”

Through your coursework and internships, you will develop strong communication skills and the role of technology in health and human services. Students also learn to assess a client’s needs for
care, counseling, education, rehab or other services from faculty with real world experience.
