Why study Human Services?


Human Services meets the needs of people working in the human services who are increasingly expected to have professional training and/or qualifications. The courses bridge the gap between academic courses, such as Sociology and Political Science, and professional courses like Social Work, Speech-Language Therapy, and Clinical Psychology.

Students majoring in subjects such as Psychology, Law, Education, Management and Sociology also have the opportunity to strengthen the human service component of their studies by including HSRV courses. Human Services students can complement their major with courses from other Arts, Science, Law and Commerce subjects.
