Human Services Leadership
Human Services Leadership is a multidisciplinary, empowering profession. The worker is a generalist who empowers people through a variety of therapeutic, teaching, counseling, supportive and preventive methods, often in an organized delivery system.
The College of Education and Human Services offers students interested in working with non-profit and government agencies an online option to earn their bachelor degree. Students of the HSLO program take 40 credits within the major’s core courses, which focus on professional leadership and decision-making, human behavior and strategies for intervention, program evaluation and grant writing, and legal and ethical issues.
Many graduates who earn their Bachelor of Science in Human Services Leadership go on to pursue careers as advocates, criminal justice workers and community planners and administrators. Others pursue master’s degrees in counseling education and public administration.
