Program Mission, Description, and Outcomes Mission:
To provide skilled human professionals in Addictions Specialization for Human Services Agencies.

Description:
Human Services program is designed as an umbrella program for the fields of psychology, mental health, addictions, social work, sociology and health care. The Program prepares students for employment in the field of human services. Students in the program integrate knowledge and practice skills through community and college service work, and professionally supervised COOPs in a wide variety of human service agencies and programs. The Human Services program is the Source Provider for the Florida Certification Board. Upon completion of the coursework, students are prepared to meet virtually all educational requirements for certification professionals. Associate degrees assist students to acquire additional skills that lead to a bachelor's degree. The COOP experience completed on campus or off campus in human services agencies provide students a unique opportunity to practice professional responsibilities through the Human Services Program, its Club, and the regional and national Organizations for Human Services.

Note: It is extremely important that students take coursework in a specific order. For that reason, new students need to schedule an interview with the assistant chair. Orientation is mandatory.
