SGS-Human Services Management
Human Services Management
The Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Human Services Management is designed for those who appreciate diversity and aspire to contribute to social justice through their work in a broad range of service-oriented organizations, such as non-profit and community organizations, criminal justice systems, health and human service agencies, residential programs, and educational institutions.
Designed for the working adult, a unique feature of this program is its accelerated term format. Classes meet in the evenings and/or on Saturdays once a week for eight-week sessions. Students who enroll in one course each session can anticipate degree completion in approximately two years
The program encourages critical and creative thinking, self-understanding and reflection, practical knowledge, and analysis of the social contexts, structures, and systems that affect all aspects of work in organizations. This degree differs from a counseling degree in that graduates are prepared to contribute to positive change from a wide range of service and administrative roles within organizations rather than to deliver therapeutic services.
