services is a profession dedicated to interdisciplinary
education and integrated services to clients. Help is focused
not only on remediation of problems, but on meeting basic
human needs and advocating for change in the systems that
affect the lives of our clients.
This program prepares students to enter the helping professions.
Students work with individuals across the lifespan who are
experiencing normal developmental difficulties as well as
specialized problems such as addictions, battering, or child
abuse. Students can enter the field immediately upon graduation
or enter graduate study in fields such as social work, counseling,
or clinical psychology.
You will study a variety of disciplines, including counseling,
psychology, sociology, and social work. A core of courses
is taken by all students, and then each student selects
a sub-field or concentration of interest. Each student also
does two internships in local agencies or schools, selected
by the student in cooperation with the advisor.
