The Department of Human Services offers both an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Human Services, which prepares students for entry-level employment, and a Bachelor of Human Services (BHS) practitioner’s degree, which prepares students as human services professionals. Both degrees employ a unique competency-based, community-oriented approach blending classroom and experiential learning. The AAS is articulated with the baccalaureate degree in a two-plus-two sequence. Employing a multidisciplinary approach, the degree objective is to provide students with both a conceptual and skill foundation suitable for successful human services practice in urban and rural settings. Human services practice requires multicultural understanding and respect of clients through a collaborative relationship founded upon a developmental model. Specific skill courses are combined with practicum experiences and strengthened through conceptual coursework in human services. Practicum placements provide students agency-based learning experiences directly related to the human services profession. - See more at: https://catalog.uaa.alaska.edu/undergraduateprograms/coh/humanservices/#sthash.w6vFTXDd.dpuf
