Human Services Academic Certificate
Our Human Services academic certificate program will prepare you to work in the behavioral health and human service fields. You will learn how to demonstrate a basic set of helping skills (warmth, empathy, reflective listening) needed for entry-level employment in human service agencies, work as a culturally sensitive ethical practitioner, demonstrate a stronger sense of self resulting from personal growth experiences, and use critical thinking and writing skills needed for working with clients. You will also do one practicum, which may be completed at your place of employment. Along with the core helping skills, you will be introduced to job-specific helping courses in fields of practice such as addictions, disabilities, gerontology or youth work.
