Human Services Minor

The interdisciplinary Human Service minor provides students the knowledge, values and skills to explore society’s social problems and the intricate social welfare system designed to assist people in need. It also provides the student with an overview of human behavior, social problems and the development of American social welfare institutions. All students, except social work majors, may pursue this minor.

A truly interdisciplinary program, this minor offers students elective courses in social work, anthropology, sociology, communications, political science, psychology, modern languages, occupational therapy, education and women and gender studies.
