Bachelor of Science in Human Services (Evening)
Students drawn to a degree in Human Services recognize the importance of people working with them, serving them, and meeting their needs in business, nonprofit, and government work. Our students come from a variety of different backgrounds and seek an undergraduate degree that builds upon their past experience to prepare them for future careers in a variety of changing fields, including business, government, counseling and social work, healthcare, gerontology, community advocacy, law enforcement, and employee relations.
Human Services providers look to demographic and public policy trends and see emerging challenges and opportunities for those committed to helping others. Students learn about providing needed services in various fields and learn to see themselves as leaders who address prevention and educational awareness of social issues and concerns. This understanding and leadership skills make Human Services graduates valuable contributors in nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and corporations, where the broad needs of talented people inspire appropriate investment in human capital.
