Human ServicesThe Human Service Concentration allows you to pursue state certification in entry-level social work. If you complete the program, you can qualify to sit for the state social work exam, and passing the exam results in award of the state credential, “Certified Social Worker.”
In combination with a major in Sociology, Criminal Justice, or Psychology, the Human Service Concentration trains you to work across a range of human needs and social problems. Returning adult students already holding a bachelor’s degree in one of these three majors can apply for the state’s Social Work Training Certificate as they complete the Human Service Concentration. This allows them to become employed as social workers during the time it takes to complete the concentration.
