Families often need a mediator to support and encourage them as they navigate the maze of social systems and resources for assistance with basic needs. The Bachelor of Science in Human Services with a Family and Child Services Certificate is designed to prepare you for the issues you may face as a human services professional working with families and children. You’ll examine the current social systems and policies that impact families, as well as various forms of family violence and child abuse.

You can gain the skills you need to work with families in need sooner because this program features the certificate option, which allows you to move core courses toward the front of your degree program. The certificate you earn will be an additional credential, which you can leverage to help you get a new position or promotion.
