Associate in Applied Science Degree
Four-Semester (Two-Year) Program
The two-year Associate Degree in Human Services is designed to give the student a foundation of knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for entry into a wide variety of human service occupations.
Employment opportunities include:
The student must meet the entrance requirements established by the college. In addition, the Human Services program requires skill in high school mathematics and English. Students lacking these skills will be required to enroll in developmental courses. A personal interview with the program head is recommended to discuss both program and occupational requirements.
The Human Services program is about people working with people. The program is designed to provide about one-third of its requirements in general education and the remainder in human services technical and support courses. The student is required to achieve at least a grade of "C" in each HMS course. The student will spend a minimum of 450 hours in supervised work experience in a social service agency. Students will be required to go through an oral interview after internship for assessment purposes. To get the most benefit from the program, students should work closely with their faculty advisor in planning their curriculum and their field experience. Application for internship should be made the semester prior to doing internship. Upon satisfactory completion of the four-semester program, the student will be awarded the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Human Services with a major in Human Services.
