Minor in Human Services

Prepare for a career geared toward helping others with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

A human services minor promotes people-centered knowledge, skills and values while preparing students for careers that are geared toward helping others.

Students gain both theoretical knowledge and practical skills for working with individuals, families and groups within human service agencies. From there, they can choose to further specialize – for example, on working with client systems at the community level or on American social policy.

In order to apply research-based practices in real-world ways, students learn to find, understand, analyze and communicate empirical research.
