The Certificate in Human Services prepares students for entry-level career positions in a wide variety of human service occupations. The coursework is also designed to meet the educational needs of entry-level, non-degreed workers in human service programs seeking career advancement. This Certificate program will also meet the needs of individuals who are choosing to change careers and have general education college credit, but no coursework in the art of helping or skills in navigating the human services delivery network
If a student has prior or current experience in human services, academic credit may be obtained from several Experience Based Education alternatives. These credits can be applied to the Certificate.
Please visit the Human Services Certificate Overview for more information.
NOTE: Most health and human service agencies require a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) for student interns and employees. Students who wonder if a formal CORI check will show a history of criminal offenses should meet with the Program Coordinator early in their course of study, since certain offenses preclude employment in the human service field.
