The Human Services program develops graduates who put their experience and skills to work as knowledgeable and empathetic leaders.

The Human Services Certificate provides students with the opportunity to experience a wide range of courses in the social sciences, psychology, and sociology programs, preparing students for the helping professions.

The program focuses on issues such as child and family development, criminal justice, faith-based social services, general human services, and global social issues. Students are also equipped to work with individuals who experience social, emotional, and cognitive problems.
