Human Services

The structure of contemporary society changes rapidly, challenging individuals and families to survive and adapt. Our Human Services program prepares you to serve these individuals with empathy and skill. Specific areas of study include:

  • human development
  • marriage and family studies and therapy
  • counseling
  • human sexuality
  • faith development
  • social services

Our Human Services concentration integrates the disciplines of psychology, counseling, and social work. You’ll participate in two courses during your sophomore or junior years that provide hands-on experience. We then require an intensive off-campus internship during the summer after your junior year. Students who choose this concentration can earn either a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree.


Psychology

Our Psychology concentration will help you grow—both personally and academically. You’ll gain self-awareness in addition to an understanding of current concepts and historical trends in the field of psychology. We also teach basic research methods, design, and analysis. Our course of study focuses on psychological theories and research about human behavior and psychological processes. The goals of psychology are to describe, explain, and predict these behaviors and processes.

Our goal is to help you understand how to implement your psychological knowledge, skills, and values in a variety of occupational settings. To that end, we require an intensive off-campus internship during the summer after your junior year. Students who choose this concentration can earn either a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree.
