Geneva launches new major for adults

BEAVER FALLS, Pa.— Geneva College established a new major in human services in its Degree Completion Program (DCP). Classes for the new major begin Sept. 11 in Pittsburgh and Sept. 12 in Beaver Falls.

     The field of human services continues to grow as new government programs and nonprofits seeking to meet the increasing social needs in communities. Many of these organizations require employment skills that a college degree in human services provides. Geneva’s emphasis on servant-leadership and academics provides human service agencies with a solution.

     The human service major offers faith perspective courses in social welfare, developmental psychology, family services and field experience. Students will receive the theoretical and practical framework needed to address both individual and community needs. In addition to classroom instruction, students will complete a 270-hour internship at a human service agency. The internship benefits both students and nonprofit agencies.

     The DCP is designed for adults who are seeking to finish their bachelor’s degree in one of four majors: human resources, community ministries, organizational development or human services. Students in the DCP meet one night a week for 20 months or 48 credits as a cohort to complete the classes in their major. The flexible structure of the program allows working adults to conveniently complete their degree while maintaining their busy schedules. Students can attend Geneva close to home or work because the DCP offers classes in 15 locations in western Pennsylvania.

     For more information on the new human service major or the DCP, call 800-576-3111 or visit the Web site at www.geneva.edu.
