Human Services Leadership Degree Program

Human services leadership is the study of the fundamentals of human interaction and social behavior. You’ll learn how different organizations function and why – and how to effectively communicate and share vision within cultures.

With a human services degree, you’ll be able to better understand how people behave, why they do what they do and how to help others manage their behavior to improve performance.
