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.
This program is designed to assist working adults in advancing their education and achieving a management degree in the Human Services field. Those who aspire to be managers, Supervisors, Assistant Directors, and Directors in the Human Services field will benefit from the facets of leadership and mission-driven courses in this program. This program is taught in two 8-week sessions each semester with students taking two courses per semester. With our small class sizes our students have the opportunity to develop critical relationships with their professors, who are working professionals in leadership positions in the Human Services field. Degree completion takes place in approximately two (2) 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.
