Human Services, Minor

Why choose a Human Services Minor at Saint Leo?

There is a high demand for human services professionals. The human services minor provides an opportunity for students in other majors to learn more about the roles, helping skills, and functions that are needed when working as a generalist with diverse populations.

Students in majors including religion, psychology, sociology, criminal justice, health care administration, nursing, general business, and even other disciplines will find this minor helpful in providing knowledge useful for navigating the challenges they can expect to encounter in their careers. Students will learn about: human growth and development; the impact of social policy on society, individuals, and families; the introduction of administrative processes at the non-profit agency or government office; as well as social and structural change through avocation and intervention. A minor in human services will help students help others achieve their maximum potential.

This Minor Comprises of the Following Courses

  Option 1 Option 2
Summer II HUS 121 & HUS 335  
Fall I HUS 340 & a HUS Elective HUS 121 & HUS 335
Fall II   HUS 340 & a HUS Elective

The courses in this minor also provide students opportunities for overall personal growth and development as well as the application of identified core values. Each course has a key writing assignment where students must discuss and integrate the core values as well as the National Organization for Human Services Code of Ethics and Council for Standards in Human Services Education (CSHSE) Curriculum Standards. Core values, ethics, and standards are vital components of all coursework as students learn theories, concepts, interventions, and skills that help in their development as service providers for at-risk, underserved, poor, and vulnerable populations.
