Human Services Major Requirements

Note: This major is open to Pauline E. Drake Students Only

The human services program consists of major core requirements and specialty areas from which students must select one course. The major core requirements provide a common body of knowledge relevant to the human services field. Cognate courses provide background knowledge in the social science areas, including a basic understanding of human behavior and some of the problems with which humans must cope.

Courses in the specialty areas help students develop skills and knowledge pertinent to specific human services areas. The field experience gives the student an advantage in securing a position or promotion from her present position after graduation.
