The Human Services Certificate is designed to prepare graduates to become service providers in a variety of human services areas, particularly in the health, wellness, and recovery fields.

Students will complete a semester of field placement at a human service agency in the area.

Prior to HUS 250 students must submit information and fees for criminal background checks. A criminal record could make you ineligible to complete field placement and graduate from the program. All Human Services (HUS) courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or better in order to count toward graduation.
