Human Services is a discipline in the social sciences that involves analysing, critiquing and debating the contexts, activities, structure and organisation of human service organisations and professions. Majoring or minoring in Human Services prepares graduates for positions in local, national, and global human service agencies, including in the third sector (not-for-profit organisations or NGOs) and government departments. We also offer the only postgraduate courses in Human Services in New Zealand.
Our courses and degrees will prepare you for work in a range of fields, as our students explain.
