Human Services

A.A.S. Degree - Career Program
Revised Program

This program prepares students for employment in agencies, schools and centers that value paraprofessionals who bring to the job a combination of college course work and human services field experience.

Human Services graduates assist professionals in all kinds of positions where people help people. These include community and social welfare agencies, mental health and social service agencies, community organizations, habilitation and rehabilitation agencies, day care centers and nursery schools, elementary and secondary schools, and geriatric services.

The A.A.S. program is flexible so that the students may choose the courses that are most appropriate to their interests and career goals.

Students must be qualified (by Accuplacer) to take ENG 101 in order to register for HUM 101 and HUM 111. There is an extended option for students taking Transitional Studies courses in reading/writing.

A minimum grade of C- or higher is required in all HUM courses to graduate from the program.
