Bachelor of Arts in Human Services Administration
Make a Move into Management with the Human Services degree
Your Human Services Administration degree will help you become a leader in your field. Move with confidence into supervisory or administrative roles in the human services or in related settings like education, health care, or human resource administration.
The Human Services Administration major emphasizes knowledge and skills in several areas:
- Human development across the span of life
- Principles of effective management and the functioning of organizations
- The wider social context of organizations
- Skills for effective management
The Human Services Administration major prepares practitioners who desire to be effective leaders in a variety of human service agencies. Students will explore and develop leadership, analytical and communication skills, as well as, knowledge and expertise focused on enhancing the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities. This major prepares students to work in an administrative capacity in non-profit and state agencies, health care and counseling centers, and community-based organizations delivering social services.
NOTE: Since Human Services Administration and the Management degrees share a significant number of common courses; students may not declare a double major with Management and Human Services Administration.

- Social service administration
- Public administration
- Human resource administration
