There is a need in your community to offer services that will help those seeking to overcome struggles in their life. The Washburn University Human Services program is designed to prepare students for rewarding careers providing these services in a helping profession. 

Our program teaches interpersonal and professional skills in prevention, intervention, and evaluation.  Our students also gain experience in the field through internships and practicums with community partners.

What Students are Saying

“The impact of WU's Human Services department on my success is huge.  As a non-traditional student, it was a great fit for me and my work schedule.  The classes were almost immediately applicable to the work I was doing and gave me a great foundation for moving forward in my career.  The encouragement of my professors led me to apply for graduate school.  The Non-Profit Management certificate I earned help broaden my skill-set and prepared me for my current position. I really enjoyed my time at WU and majoring in Human Services is probably one of the best decisions I have made.”
