    School Overview

    If you have a desire to improve peoples’ lives and make a positive impact on society, then human services may be the program for you. 

    From a career perspective, the demand for human service workers is expected to steadily increase as the United States prepares for the largest wave of retirees in history, and as health-care organizations and government place more emphasis on prevention than treatment. 

    You’ll cover a range of areas, like working with families, individuals, groups and communities, public policy, child welfare, mental health and many others.
