Chestnut Hill College’s Accelerated Adult Degree Program is designed for the adult learner. The Human Services program prepares students for careers working in agencies and organizations, such as schools, social service agencies, mental health centers, courts, crisis counseling centers, residential treatment facilities, and hospitals. In these settings, human service professionals provide a broad range of services to individuals, families, and groups including advocacy, case management, and networking. The program also prepares students for graduate studies in human services-related fields.
“Choosing to get my degree formalizes a vocation I had already chosen. The Human Service major opened up areas of knowledge to which I only had minimal exposure. It has also honed skills to which I had already developed through volunteering.”
