Human Services - A.S.
The Human Services Program is designed for students interested in transferring to four-year institutions to earn a baccalaureate degree in the area of human services, counseling or social work, and for students preparing for careers as paraprofessionals in educational and human services agencies upon completion of the Associate in Science degree. The program will also be useful for students currently employed in paraprofessional positions within human service agencies interested in continuing education.
Human Services is a challenging career field that provides the opportunity for personal satisfaction through helping others.
Often students find their way to the Human Services field through their own personal experiences of being helped. The desire to give back motivates them to pursue a career in the helping professions.

The internship segment of the curriculum is an integral part of the student's learning process as it gives the student an opportunity to experience human services work and apply basic theoretical knowledge and helping skills covered in courses. Internships are available in a wide variety of health, human service and school settings. Note: Internships are based on availability each semester.
