About the Human Services Discipline

The Human Services Associate in Science degree is designed to prepare students to enter the highly demanding field of human services to provide quality care and support. Students will gain knowledge of human service delivery systems; intervention strategies and case management techniques; communication skills for working with individuals, groups, and diverse populations; ethical and legal standards of practice; and personal and interpersonal skills needed to manage stress and increase wellness. This degree is designed to prepare students for employment as Human Service counselors, workers, and aides in areas of social services, vocational rehabilitation, mental health, child and family services, support services for seniors and people with disabilities and educational facilities, and to provide additional training and skills for career advancement to currently employed paraprofessional human service workers.
