About: Community and Human Services



The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Community and Human Services is great for students interested in or already working in a number of the helping professions, including human and social service agencies, non-profit agencies and faith-based organizations.

This program offers a strong overview of the social service field and the role of the professional as an agent for positive social change. Students can choose to either complete a general Community and Human Services major or they can enhance the degree with a Family Systems Concentration. Community and Human Services is designed for students with some previous study and/or experience in the social sciences.
