Human Services BA/BS
Learn about your community and social environment, improve your career opportunities to reach educational goals, and enhance specific human relations skills and strengthen your ability to work effectively in social services.
SOU’s small class sizes and friendly learning environment foster close ties among students, faculty, and the community. The length of the degree completion program varies with each individual, depending on prior coursework and employment status.
To be admitted to the Human Service Program, students must have approximately 90-quarter hours of transferable credits from an accredited institution. Students with less than 90 hours may still enter the program, though some lower division courses may need to be taken in order to meet all degree requirements. University general education requirements will also need to be fulfilled as listed in the SOU Catalog.
As a Human Services Major, you are required to complete a senior capstone project. The capstone experience integrates and synthesizes the skills and knowledge you’ve acquired in the human service program. Students develop a social service program encompassing needs assessment, program rationale, objectives, methods, activities, and a plan for program evaluation.
