Health and Human Studies
The Health and Human Studies major prepares you for careers in organizations that serve people through health or social services and provides an appropriate foundation for graduate programs in allied health or social services. Graduates may find employment with individuals across all age groups in a variety of organizational settings. For example, in programs for at-risk youth or homeless families, day treatment centers for children or older adults, substance abuse programs or health-focused agencies.
Students who major in Health and Human Studies take a core of required courses that provide a background in physical and mental health, ethics, communication, and data management and then select several additional major courses that enable you to pursue your own interests in the major. For example, you may take courses that provide a better understanding of people with mental illness while another may opt for courses that explore the health and education needs of children.
