Human Services (480) Associate of Applied Science Degree

Purpose: This program is designed to prepare students for employment in the human services industry and focuses on the training and preparation of entry-level to mid-level social and human services assistants.

Applied degrees (AAS/AAA) are designed to prepare students for entry into the workforce. Under formal articulation agreements with some four-year colleges and universities, students enrolled in a career/technical program who wish to pursue baccalaureate studies may be able to transfer selected courses into related programs at senior institutions. Students interested in pursuing transfer options should consult with a Thomas Nelson advisor early in their academic career and consult the transfer guide for their intended transfer institution and major.

Articulation Agreement: Students who are interested in transferring to Old Dominion University to continue the AS Human Services to BS Human Services   plan should meet with Academic Advising early to determine and discuss requirements. 

Part-Time Program Sequence  


This program is fully accessible and can be completed through eCampus (web-based learning) or students can learn in a traditional classroom environment.
