Health & Human Services

The Program

Helping individuals, families and communities with the challenges of mental illness or chemical dependency, abused children or our aging population is the focus of the program. We tackle the problems that people experience in their everyday lives: violence, mental illness, drug abuse, racism, poverty, ageism, and family problems by teaching our students the necessary skills and knowledge to address these issues. In short, we empower our students to be prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century. Our graduates leave our program with a solid understanding of the human condition and the necessary skills needed to bring about change.

While units in this program are transferable to many institutions, students should contact a counselor for more information.
