Gain the skills to be a leader at service organizations with your master's degree in human services from the University of Arizona Global Campus. In this degree program, you will be taught by qualified human services faculty members as they help you develop an understanding of the different values, goals, and lifestyles of service consumers and employees. You will also learn how to guide the work of others to deliver services effectively and make a real impact on the lives of others.
You will develop your own management skills, with an emphasis on topics such as grant-writing, planning, managing budgets, implementing information systems, and leading people. Your human services coursework also includes an integrative project, where you will apply your knowledge in a practical way to solve a human services problem.
