The Department of Social Work (SW) and Human Services (HS) offers two degree programs: a Bachelor of Science in Human Services, and the Master of Social Work degrees. The department also features two certificate programs: Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Certificate in Nonprofit Management and Leadership and a certificate in Child Advocacy Studies Training.

The HS curriculum is designed to prepare students to enter the workforce as generalist practitioners in a variety of private, nonprofit or governmental human service organizations. The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA) certificate prepares students to work in the areas of nonprofit management and leadership. The certificate in Child Advocacy Studies Training (CAST) focuses on experiential, interdisciplinary, ethical and culturally sensitive content that will provide professionals working with children a common knowledge base for responding to child maltreatment.
