Human Services

HUMS student Vincent Feuilles

"Putting people to work, working with people" is a phrase that best sums up the Human Services field—one of the fastest growing career fields in the United States today. In an age of turbulent social change, there is a definite need for the skilled human services professional.

The Human Services program now includes instructional faculty from campuses across the University of Alaska Anchorage system. These faculty teach core courses that Human Services AAS, BHS, and certificate programs require, which may include combined distance-delivery and on-campus instructional opportunities. This means students will fulfill degree requirements, electives, and certificate courses from faculty who may be in Anchorage, Mat-Su, Kenai Peninsula campus (Soldotna), or Kachemak Bay campus (Homer). View all Human Services courses by selecting "UAA - All Campuses" on UA Online to view the full academic schedule for the UAA Dept. of Human Services.
