The baccalaureate degree (BS) program in human services management prepares workers who, as generalists, can work with clients in a wide range of human services agencies and also can employ sound management practices. This interdisciplinary program not only prepares students to offer direct service to clients but also prepares them in the basics of program management and supervision. The program requires students to take lower- and upper-level courses in the human services, and additional courses in management, accounting, and leadership. An upper-level internship of 400 or more hours in a public or private human services agency is required.
