Study for a degree in community and human services expands your understanding of the relationship between human needs and values and social conditions. You develop analytical and communication skills, as well as the knowledge and expertise to contribute to the development and maintenance of healthy communities, groups and individuals. Students in this area learn to understand and integrate the four foundations of the discipline: knowledge, skills, attitudes and values; and experience, application and practice. Many faculty mentors in community and human services have had extensive experience in the field in roles ranging from direct service to program evaluation and are available to guide you to meet personal and vocational goals.
