Human Services Technology Admissions
The Human Services curriculum prepares graduates to work in various areas of the helping profession, including direct client care settings throughout the lifespan, residential care, mental health, various services for the elderly, community care services and child protective services.
Courses are focused on developing human services skills and competencies based on the Human Services values and professionalism. Some of the skills and competencies will be case management, interviewing, crisis intervention, assessment, report writing, identification of needs and services and advocacy skills. In addition, students will take courses in other areas to facilitate a holistic approach to helping, such as psychology, sociology, biology and computer skills.
