Earn your associate of science degree online
You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students
Major changes in society have resulted in a need for human service professionals. Advancing technology, an aging population, economic factors, significant changes in the character and structure of the family, and other social trends contribute to this need. Human Services is a challenging career field that provides the opportunity for personal satisfaction through helping others. The Human Services Program is designed for students interested in transferring to four-year institutions to earn a baccalaureate degree in the area of human services, counseling, or social work, and for students preparing for careers as paraprofessionals in educational and human services agencies upon completion of the Associate in Science degree. The program will also be useful for students currently employed in paraprofessional positions within human service agencies interested in continuing education.
