The Bachelor of Arts Human Service Modular program is designed to offer an interdisciplinary degree to prepare graduates to meet the leadership demands of a rapidly changing service sector. Students complete a core of liberal arts courses and core courses in psychology, sociology and religious studies.
This Human Services BA degree prepares students for fulfilling careers working with people who need additional support to function successfully in their communities. A graduate with this degree may find employment in family and community daycare facilities, youth programs, group homes and residential settings, special needs programs and care agencies. This major is excellent preparation for graduate studies and also commencing the Bachelor of Education.
Full-time undergraduate education is made possible for adults (25 years of age or older) because of its unique design. Each modular course consists of one four-hour evening class per week for five weeks supplemented by 14-18 hours of guided independent study per week. This format gives essentially the same time involvement as a traditional schedule.
The program's goal is to integrate Christian faith, learning, living and career preparation in a meaningful and practical way.
