Human Services Technology – Addiction and Recovery Studies

The Human Services Technology curriculum prepares students for entry-level positions in institutions and agencies which provide family, community, and social services. Along with core courses, students take courses that prepare them for specialization in specific human service areas. Students will take courses from a variety of disciplines. The emphasis in core courses is placed on the development of relevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes in human services. Fieldwork experience will provide opportunities for the application of knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.

Graduates should qualify for positions in mental health, family services, social services, rehabilitation, and educational agencies. Graduates choosing to continue their education may select from a variety of transfer programs at senior public and private institutions.
