Program Spotlight: Human Services Degree

When choosing a career, it's important to look at all of the options. But it's most important to choose a degree which will put you in a career that you love and are committed to for the long-term. A human services degree is unlike many others because it really is a calling. If you have a natural affinity for helping others, feel that your life is more full when you're able to contribute to a worthy cause or community need, and feel that your purpose in life is less dependent on your own success than on the success of the endeavors you're part of – human services may be your perfect fit.

National Self Improvement Month

September is National Self Improvement Month. The best way to honor it, of course, is by taking steps to improve yourself and your life in some way. Unlike New Year's resolutions, which tend to be pretty broad and are typically about willpower, September's self-improvement steps are about redefining and adjusting our goals. So, which areas of your life need improvement? Popular examples include becoming more physically fit, carving out more personal time, advancing in your career or furthering your education. The last example may see a bit odd for a working adult, but advancing your education can help you achieve all of your other goals and then some.
