WWU Human Services Program in Everett - We are recruiting for Fall 2024!

The Human Services Program in Everett provides an interdisciplinary and systems-oriented theoretical lens by which to view the profession. We provide a curriculum designed to educate students in thinking skills (including critical reflection, source evaluation, research and analytical skills, and argumentation); professional identity preparation (including unveiling positionality and standpoints, developing skills through direct and indirect practice, and a personal sense of agency); systems change theory (including historical and ecological understandings, dynamics of power and inequity, and strategies for navigating systems change); and citizen participation (including community work, advocacy, organizing, and collaboration).

HS Everett Students

The program uses a cohort model to provide students with an opportunity to build a deep understanding of the human services profession in a dynamic and collaborative learning environment. The program also incorporates several quarters of field study (internship) that integrates knowledge and skills with professional practice.
