Study Human Services
Human Services is a relatively new helping profession which emerged in response for the need of skilled practitioners to work in mental health agencies and other social service settings.
The human services worker is guided by a professional code of ethics to assure the highest standards of service to their clients.
The Human Services major at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College emphasizes theory, knowledge, and skills for competent practice in this emerging helping profession. Human Services graduates assist individuals, families and groups in many settings through a variety of modalities including casework, groupwork, community organization, and advocacy. They are employed in mental health centers, residential facilities, child and family welfare agencies, and community-based organizations.
