The Human Services/Social Work program is designed to provide students with the knowledge base for the profession and general skills to enter into the workforce and/or transfer to a bachelor’s program. Students who want to pursue a career in human services/social work have a sincere concern for others, ability to motivate others and desire to make a change in the world. The program allows for classroom instruction about the field including networking with agency workers in the area and learning about available programs. The program includes the opportunity to spend one semester in an agency where the skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom will be applied. The student will also earn general education credits that will apply to a bachelor’s program.
Nine of the required 60 credits must be completed in person (HMS 160, HMS 162, HMS 258) and the rest may be completed online. Click the link below for information from the course catalog.
