Human Services Wordle

Since 1975 Western Washington University's Human Services major has been providing students with opportunities to become effective professionals.  Today, the major continues to position graduates to effectively address the unique challenges of the 21st century.

What do students learn in the program?

Over a two year course of study students engage in a rich learning experience to acquire knowledge and skills in areas such as human development, case management and interventions, diversity and social justice dynamics, applied research, and program planning and evaluation.  Blending a liberal arts education with opportunities to engage in professional practice, students explore individual, interpersonal, small group, organizational, community, and global systems.
