Human Services

Do people run to you with their problems? Do you help them work out those problems? Sounds like you may be suited for a career in human services. Our introductory courses include visits to and field experiences at local human services agencies, so you can see what facets of the field are a good fit for you. 

Because of our advanced accreditation from the Illinois Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Professional Certification Association (IAODAPCA), graduates of our human services AAS degree program can become Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselors (CADC) and enter the workforce more quickly.
