Human Services Minor

A minor in human services gives students the opportunity to learn about the great work being provided by many community organizations. Combining a human services minor with a major gives students the opportunity to learn about individuals, communities, and political interventions for social change. The minor in human services may also provide a pathway for students to careers in many diverse areas of social change or to graduate programs in social work, health, counseling, rehabilitation, and law.  Students will gain appreciation regarding the value and reward of dedicating time and energy to helping people and communities. The Human Services minor requires successful completion of 18 credits in Human Services related courses. These courses may fulfill major-area or open electives.
