Human Services Professions

Graduates interested in the human services professions have a wide range of career opportunities. One graduate, for example, has directed a project to prevent child sexual abuse. Another has worked in tenant relations for a large city. A third has counseled dying patients and their families at a hospice, and several own and direct daycare centers. Many others work in nursing homes, preschools, family and marriage clinics, drug and alcohol treatment centers, and other health care facilities.
