Areas of Study: Human Services
The Human Services minor is designed to provide you with a practical understanding of the social welfare system and its impact on individuals and families.
The minor is intended to enhance a student’s primary major, especially those that lead to careers in human service fields – for example, pastoral ministry (see Bible and religion), including youth ministry or business – with an eye to working in the nonprofit world. It would provide excellent preparation if you intend to enter voluntary service or a paraprofessional position in a human service organization or agency. While the Human Services minor is not preparation for a specific profession, it provides you with skills and knowledge to serve clients in a variety of public outreach organizations.
