Perspective on the Human and Social Services Degree
“One of the many positive things about a degree in Human Services is the versatility of the degree. With a bachelor’s degree in Human Services from Ottawa University, you can work with children and teens, adults, families, or the elderly. The settings you can work in are just as versatile including hospitals, community organizations, public welfare agencies, and private clinics such as substance abuse clinics or mental health clinics. We even offer amazing internship opportunities at facilities such as hospitals, battered women’s shelters, substance abuse clinics, and residential treatment centers for at risk youth. For online students, our faculty facilitates a unique hands-on experience through video counseling sessions and opportunities to learn about agencies and resources in your area.” Mary Alice Grosser, MSW, Professor in Charge of Human and Social Services
