What Is Human Services

Those who work in human services are dedicated to helping the less fortunate in society, including abused and neglected children, the homeless, veterans having difficulty transition to civilian life and the poor. They typically design, implement and oversee programs that help alleviate the issues suffered by people within those groups.

Human service workers include direct-service and and clinical social workers. The former helps find those in need and work with them to make improvements to their lives. Clinical social workers diagnose and treat those with mental, behavorial and emotional disorders, providing both individual and family therapy sessions as well as developing an overall treatment plan with other medical professionals, such as doctors and healthcare specialists.

Careers with a Human Services Degree.

A Bachelor’s degree in Social Work (BSW) or a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Human Services is usually considered the minimum degree required for entry into the profession. If you want to advance into administrative or policy-making jobs in this field you will probably need to attain a Master of Public Health (MPH) or a Master of Science (MS) in Human Services.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that employment for human services workers will grow by 22% through 2022 – much faster than average when compared to all occupations. Opportunities in rural areas, which often find it difficult to attract skilled experts in this field, will be especially plentiful.
