Our goal is to produce human services professionals who are knowledgeable, competent, skillful, self-reflective, culturally sensitive, and have high ethical standards.
The degree is well grounded in social science scholarship and carries on a tradition of a liberal arts education, in which one’s character development is an integral part of the program. Graduates will be trained to combine professional competencies with the ability to think critically, and they will reflect an understanding of and appreciation for self and for human diversity.
