M.A. Human Services degree plan

Human Services, M.A.



The Master of Arts in Human Services prepares students for careers in a variety of social service systems, such as health and social services or non-profit organizations.

Our program trains students to become informed, ethical professionals who respect the dignity and diversity of the people they serve. The curriculum is highly interdisciplinary, drawing on current knowledge in related fields like sociology, counseling, criminal justice, non-profit management, and public administration. It is also flexible, allowing students to tailor their specialization courses toward their area of service. We also focus on social justice to provide students with the tools needed to make changes within social structures that institute inequalities. Additionally, the capstone component gives students opportunities to put theory into practice through real-world learning experiences.
