The central foundation of the UAA human services degree programs is the optimistic embrace of change and a belief in the future. Therefore, the programs' theoretical foundation is composed of conceptual bricks supporting change from the differing perspectives of adult education through Mezirow's Perspective Transformation (1994), Psychology through Prochaska, Norcross and DiClemente's Change Theory (2005) and Bandura's Self-Efficacy Theory (1997). This multidisciplinary foundation flowers into a web of classroom and experiential learning opportunities reflecting the breadth and depth of contemporary human services.
