B.A. Human Service is an interdisciplinary applied program that promotes service to others. It fosters an understanding of the causes and consequences of individual and social problems and prepares you for careers in the helping professions.

The B.A in Human Services helps build a foundation in social policy, group skills, psychology, sociology, diversity issues and research methods.
