As a human services student, you’ll complete two human services internships while earning college credit.
All human services careers are concerned with meeting human needs and improving quality of life on an individual and community level.
Once you graduate, you’ll be prepared to pursue a career and/or graduate work in fields such as human development and family sciences, counseling, marriage and family therapy, nonprofit administration, social work and more.
