  • Accounting
  • Budgeting
  • Economics

Program Overview

Explore the roles, responsibilities, and ownership needed to build a positive working environment. Develop as an emotionally conscious and socially responsible leader.

Since Human Services Administration and the Management major share a significant number of  common courses, students may not declare a double major with Management and Human Services  Administration.
