Master of Arts in Human Services
Southeastern University

Program Details

The Master of Arts in Human Services program at Southeastern University is designed for students wishing to pursue advanced careers that help people in a variety of settings that deal with human services. The program will emphasize the relationship between Christian values and a vocation that serves others and seeks to meet their needs. Students will study administration and leadership roles in human services. This program is ideal for students who have undergraduate degrees in similar areas, current careers in service organizations, or who simply wish to work with people while organizing and managing services.  

Courses will educate students on advanced ways of assessing an organization’s needs, planning services and programs to meet those needs, and managing people and programs in effective and compassionate ways. Core classes teach students the foundation of human services, how to design programs, and how to communicate with those from different backgrounds and cultures. Other topics include legal and ethical issues, the role of human services in a community, and the connection between faith and profession. Students may opt to specialize in Gerontology, Children and Families, Emergency Management, or Administration. Choosing a specialization gives individuals the chance to focus on skills that meet their interests and career goals.
