A growing number of people are relying on social services (www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes210000.htm)—from the baby boomer population entering its golden years to those affected by the ongoing economic problems, to those seeking treatment for mental health and addiction issues. This can translate into a growing need for individuals in human services organization management positions.
The Bachelor of Science in Human Services/Management (Certificate Track) is designed to rapidly prepare you for such a role. You'll learn specialized knowledge in grant and proposal writing, program evaluation and balancing resources—skills that can help you thrive in an administrative position in a variety of human services settings.
To help you gain job skills earlier in your program, the certificate option allows you to move core courses toward the front of your degree program. The certificate you earn will be an additional credential, which you can leverage to help you get a new position or promotion.
