Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Human Services from Southeastern University is ideal for students wishing to pursue careers that involve helping people, which can apply to many settings and disciplines. As opposed to specific programs that train students for certain areas, this program teaches students skills that can apply to many career positions and settings. Students should learn the art of linking people with the resources they need for assistance in places such as health-care settings, non-profit programs, social services agencies, and others. Students could also continue their education in more specific areas such as counseling or social work.

The program starts with a general education that emphasizes the Christian experience. Students will explore what it means to live a Christ-centered life and cultivate an appreciation of God and God’s world. Students will link these values to various aspects of life, including their major focus and ultimately their career goals. The major course work will involve lessons on helping others including problem-solving, ethical decision making, and critical thinking and analysis. Courses will cover a wide range of professions such as healthcare, case management, program planning, organizational leadership, and others.

Students may select elective courses that focus on their own interests and career goals. Electives include, but are not limited to, family care, church ministry, and substance abuse. The program includes two internships, which will provide students with experience with a local human services organization.  Students can choose places that are faith based or non-faith based. Those who complete the program have the ability to pursue a variety of career positions such as case coordinator, community outreach worker, healthcare assistant, social services assistant or administrator, and many others.

    Southeastern University was established in 1935 in Alabama with the purpose of training pastors and missionaries, and later relocated to Lakeland in 1946.
