Family and Human Services (B.S.|B.A)

Department of Counseling Psychology & Human Services

Students who pursue a degree in FHS help support the health and well-being of communities, families, and individuals through the development of prevention programs and through direct advocacy and delivery of services across the various levels of a person’s ecology.

Reflecting the diversity of the community and social service sector, FHS is interdisciplinary, drawing on the fields of psychology/counseling, social work, prevention science, public health, human development, and sociology. As such, a degree in FHS is highly versatile and can lead to several careers.

The family and human services major leads to a bachelor of arts (BA) or a bachelor of science (BS) degree.

  • The bachelor of arts (BA) degree requires proficiency in a second language.
  • The bachelor of science (BS) degree requires proficiency in mathematics or computer and information science or a combination of the two.
