The Human Services Associate of Arts degree is an academic transfer program designed to introduce students to the field of human services.

The course of study provides students with the general education courses consistent with those required of freshmen and sophomores in four-year universities and also provides an introduction to the various career fields in human services: social work, crisis intervention, children/youth/family services, and human services/mental health. Maximum transferability to a four-year degree program in Human Services can be assured when students carefully coordinate their Associate of Arts degree work with the general education requirements of the four-year institution to which they plan to transfer.

Students can also earn Certificates of Employability (COE) in Helping Relationship Skills or Alcohol and Drug Abuse Studies.
