Human Services Practitioner

This program is designed for students who are interested in providing support for people with varied disabilities in the health, human service, and education fields with children, adolescents, adults, and senior citizens. Students will gain knowledge and skills in human behavior, communication, and medications.

The A AS degree provides the student supervisory skills with the ability to obtain Designated Coordinator status with two years of work experience as regulated by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). The Designated Coordinator status enables the graduate to apply for supervisory and middle management positions in the Human Services occupations.

Minnesota law requires a background check before working in any licensed facility. Students must have a clear criminal background to participate in internship and, therefore, be eligible for graduation.
