Why human services?
Generalist human services professionals are often 'front line' workers and have daily contact with vulnerable individuals and families. These professionals work with interdisciplinary teams to assess functioning, and develop service plans, coordinate services, provide support, and work for social change. The Human Services curriculum prepares generalists who have knowledge and skills necessary to work with a variety of vulnerable populations such as the elderly, children, persons with mental illness, persons with disabilities, and victims of violence.
Human Services majors are strongly encouraged to complete at least 400 hours of related service work through volunteering, service learning, field experience and internships, and to achieve basic Spanish language proficiency.
