Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree Options

Human services is an ideal degree choice for students who are interested in a career helping others. The program provides an orientation to social agency administration with a management background. The human services degree uses the TEAM approach described on the College of Professional Studies . Courses marked with an asterisk (*) require TEAM enrollment.

The human services degree uses a tracked teaching approach, Tracked Educational Adult Modules (TEAM), with students organized into TEAM groups of 12 to 18 members. Each TEAM proceeds through the HS courses in a predetermined order. Since each course builds upon the previous one, students cannot drop in or out of the TEAM at will. If you drop from a TEAM, you may have to wait until the next TEAM to re-register for classes. For additional information, please contact the Warrior Information Network.
