Associates of Applied Science in Human Services Degree Program graphic.

Associate of Applied Science in Human Services Program

The AAS degree program in human services is designed to prepare students for employment in social service agencies, mental health centers, correctional institutions, substance abuse treatment facilities, community health education organizations, and many other settings in helping professions where ethical and effective client interactions are essential.

Human Services Practicum courses offer opportunities for "real life" applications of theoretical concepts and for skills development through job shadowing and community field experiences. Coursework may be used as electives, or for continuing education by students or professionals in areas such as education, social work, substance abuse treatment, counseling, nursing, radiology, emergency medical care, and business.

A Certificate of Achievement in Substance Abuse Counselor Training and a Certificate of Achievement in Human Services may also be earned while completing requirements for the AAS degree in human services, as these three programs share a common core of courses.

Entry-level human services courses have no prerequisites or program entry requirements. Students choose to begin at any time by registering for classes. However, an accepted application is required prior to beginning each of the practicum courses. Academic advising prior to starting any course of study is highly encouraged. Much of the coursework may be completed online, through interactive video, and/or by an independent study on a case-by-case basis.
