Human Services (HSER)

Career Options & Highlights

This program prepares students for employment as an associate professional and also prepares students for transfer to four-year colleges and universities to continue their studies in Psychology and Social Work. Courses in the Human Services program may be applicable foundation courses for further study toward licensure as Marriage and Family Therapists, Social Workers, and Psychologists. All courses in the Human Services program are CSU transferrable and may fulfill lower-division requirements for a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Coursework emphasizes performance-based training in client screening, intake, assessment, orientation, individual counseling, group counseling, consultation, client’s rights, confidentiality, crisis intervention, client education, professional ethics, reports, and record keeping.

If you are interested in transferring to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor's degree in Human Services, it is critical that you meet with a counselor to select and plan the courses for your major. Transfer institutions vary widely in the courses required for undergraduate preparation. The courses required by FLC for an associate degree may be different from the requirements for a bachelor's degree.
