Program Description

Upon completion of your HUM A.S. degree, you will be prepared for an entry-level position in a Human Services or Social Services agency, or you may choose to transfer to a four-year institution.

Students complete two introductory Human Services (HUM) courses, a 3-credit Human Services theories and methods of practice course, (HUM 162, 165 or 260), three 3-credit HUM elective courses and a fieldwork course, HUM 164 Human Services Field Instruction and Seminar I.

A personal interview may be required before being admitted to the Human Services program. Your academic and professional competence will be periodically reviewed by the faculty. Enrollment and continuation in the Human Services program are subject to faculty approval. You must earn a grade of C or better in HUM/ASA or EDU courses and have a GPA of 2.0 to take fieldwork courses and to graduate from the program.

Special program costs include bus or car expenses for transportation to and from fieldwork sites. A medical examination, a tuberculin test, a background check, and fingerprinting may be required before beginning field work placements and may require additional costs.
