Human Services Bachelor from Millikin University details


Program Format: Campus Program Level: Bachelor

Human Services from Millikin University is a Campus Bachelor Human Science degree that prepares you for a Human Services career. This major is designed to provide you with a cross-disciplinary perspective necessary for a beginning a career or graduate study in the fields of Social Work or Human Services. Social work practice consists of the professional application of social work values, principles, and techniques to: help people obtain tangible services; provide counseling and psychotherapy with individuals, families, and groups; help communities or groups provide or improve social and health services; and participate in legislative processes. The practice of social work requires knowledge of human development and behavior; of social and economic, and cultural institutions; and of the interaction of all these factors (NASW, 2003). Human Services is best characterized as \\\"systems of services and allied occupations and professions that concentrate on improving or maintaining the physical and mental health and general well-being of individuals, groups, or communities in our society. Human Services have been classified into \\\"four service categories: (1) personal services such as counseling, rehabilitation, recreation, religion, (2) protection services such as public health service, courts, law enforcement, consumer protection, fire fighting, (3) information or advising services such as financial counseling, hotlines, libraries, and (4) maintenance services such as child care, unemployment assistance, public welfare, Social Security programs\\\" (Zastrow, 2000). Human Services is distinguishable from Social Work in that it includes other social services (e.g., law enforcement, library services, housing code enforcement) as well as programs traditionally classified as social welfare services. Thus, Human Services is a broader field as it includes social welfare services as one of the many types of social services provided to individuals, groups, organizations, or communities.

Can I become a psychiatrist if I have a bachelors in human services?

I know I would have to enter med school but could I get in with a human services bachelors since it requires a bachelors to get in

asked by: uwndbjsa


Answer: You can apply to med school with any major as long as you've taken the required premed classes in bio, chem, physics, math, and English, have a high GPA, and good MCAT scores. Sounds like you're probably not meeting the requirements. Maybe look into a postbacc course.

Will I get far in life and successful with a Human services bachelor's degree?

I am in nursing and I am considering changing my major to Human services because I can't make it to nursing. But, I just hope I am able to get a good job in the future with that degree. Right now I am thinking of getting an associates and than getting a bachelor's degree of it. I mean successful as easily getting a job and getting a fair amount of money. I don't know what else I would do.

asked by: Booboo


Answer: My opinion is that HR will be outsourced. All of that can be done in Asia. Recruiters can call you from Asia and set people up for interviews and jobs. Nursing on the other hand cannot be outsourced. To answer your question, it's up to you, but just know the reality. Jobs are being outsourced to Asia like crazy...so less need for HR in America. More and more companies are having headquarters or main sites in Asia.

A small college/university with a Human Services and Global Studies Program?

Hi! I am looking for a small college/university with a human services bachelors program. (I'd like to minor in global studies if possible.) Something similar to Lesley College, in Boston. Anyone have any advice? Thank you for your help!

asked by: Kelly M


Answer: Pfeiffer or Montreat, both in North Carolina...are excellent small liberal arts colleges. Pfeiffer is a Methodist college, and Montreat is Presbyterian...neither of which is frighteningly religious if you're not super religious yourself. They both have Human Services majors and the ability to minor in International Studies. Good luck!

What jobs can you get with an associates degree in Human Services?

What jobs can you get with an associates degree in Human Services? What about a bachelors degree in psychology?

asked by: Morgan


Answer: Hi Morgan! According to this site http://www.guidetoonlineschools.com/degrees/human-services it looks like "Undergraduate certificate and associate degrees in human services can prepare graduates for administrative roles and assistant clinical work in areas like social work and alcohol and substance abuse." I also found this article about what jobs you can get with a bachelors degree in psychology: http://www.guidetoonlineschools.com/library/what-can-i-do-with-a-bachelors-in-psychology. Good luck! :)

What careers could I have with a Human Services degree?

I am in school studying for my associates in liberal arts and then I plan to attend a four year college to get my bachelors. I was planning on going for just social work but now I am thinking that a Human Services degree will give me more career choices. Could I still be a social worker if I went to get my bachelors in human services? Also, I am always interested in human behavior and so if I wanted to minor in something related to that, should it be psychology? Sorry so many questions.

asked by: Orange is not a skin tone honey... ♥♥


Answer: Lots of paths are open to a Human Services major ... social work, psychology, arts administration, pastor, health care administration, some kinds of teaching, human resources (personnel) work in business, sales, insurance adjuster, politics, to name just a few. Do you know somebody you admire in human services? Ask their advice.

which degree is better bachelors in human services or bachelors in social work ?

i have my associates in human services.. I did my internship working with people that have a mental illness and i really loved it. thats what i want to do. I was curious which degree would be better for that.

asked by: angel_1356623


Answer: The BA in social work is a far superior degree on multiple levels. 1) The BSW is an accredited degree - schools do a BA in human services when they don't want to do an accredited degree (most of these are online colleges). 2) Most jobs recognize the BSW because of the accreditation, All things being equal a BSW will be viewed as more qualified. 3) The BSW gives you the ability to apply for advanced standing for your MSW - saving you a year.

What can I do with an Associates Degree in Human Services?

I am 55, work full time (Midnights) and attending Baker College full time working toward my Bachelors Degree in Human Services. I feel that at my age maybe I sould settle for an Associates Degree. Who would want to employ someone who is 58 in that field?

asked by: valerie b


Answer: Valerie...first of all - congratulations! You're never too old to learn or to get a degree. Most likely you will be able to find a position with a social services agency, probably non profit places would be a great place for you to start! Why not complete the associate degree and have that piece of paper? Then, if you choose, you can continue on for the Bach. of Science in Human Services. Most jobs in the fields that will employ you most will want a Bachelor's degree. But it's not to say that you cannot become employed with an Associate's! Does Baker College offer any career counseling? Go to FOFWEB.com and enter Strayer/Strayer. It's a fabulous website!

Is a degree in human services worth it?

I am studying human services instead of social services. Will I still be able to get social work jobs with a Bachelors in human services?

asked by: enji


Answer: Human services graduates work alongside social workers, detectives, doctors, and other specialists who help individuals tackle major challenges in their lives. So you'll be like an assistant to the social worker.

What can I do with an associates degree in Human Services?

I currently have no experience in the Human Services field but I will have some before I get my degree this year because I have to do a internship before I get my degree. Also, I plan to get my bachelor's degree in behavioral science once I am done with my associates degree. What kind of jobs can I get with these two degrees? Can anyone help me PLEASE?

asked by: sexy B


Answer: I've had my Associate's in Human Services for 15 years, and to be honest, with just an Associate's, there is really nothing much you can do...especially with no experience. In Human Services, they like the degree, but experience is much more important.. So I would suggest finding a part time job or volunteering. You will most definitely need the experience even more than the degree. Some things you can do: Work in a homeless shelter as an aide, group home for the mentally retarded, day care centers for either adults or children, work with immigrants... Even with a bachelor's degree, they are likely to choose someone with years of experience over someone with a degree only. Your best bet, if you plan to work in Human Services is to get your Master's.

Can I become an elementary school teacher with a human service degree?

I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in mental health and human services and I'm interested in becoming an elementary school teacher. I'm going for my masters in education after I graduate but I'd love to start my career sooner than later. As long as I take and pass my Praxis exam, will my degree qualify me for certification?

asked by: amberleigh222


Answer: I doubt. Check the requirements in your state by going to the state department of education website.
