Human Services, Minor

The Human Services Minor prepares students whose occupational goals may be enhanced by a human services background that includes an understanding of social services, policies, and delivery systems. A minor in Human Services is not accepted by the Council on Social Work Education as adequate preparation for entry level professional social work practice, neither does a minor in social welfare qualify one to take social work state licensure examinations. Note: Some 300 and 400 level courses may require a prerequisite.
