Human Services Program Outcomes & Information

  • The human services program at CCD is fully accredited by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education. The program has been accredited by CSHSE since 1997 and is accredited through October 2018.
  • There are approximately 314 students declared in one of two Human Services Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree programs as of the 2016-2017 academic year (145 students in the A.A.S. Human Services Transfer and 169 in the A.A.S. Human Services Pre-Social Work Track). The fall 2016 headcount for the program was 250 students.
  • Approximately 15 percent of our program students are male, while 85 percent are female. Sixty-five percent of our students identify as an ethnic minority, 78 percent identify as low income, and 15 percent indicate they have a disability. Additionally, 28 percent of our college students attend full-time, while 72 percent attend part-time.
  • There are two (2) full-time faculty members (one of which also serves as the program chair) and two (2) adjunct instructors in the program. There will be two (2) additional adjunct instructors joining the program in the spring 2019 semester.
  • The average class size for the program is 20 students and the faculty to student ratio is 1:20.
  • The human services program awarded 133 Associate of Applied Science degrees between 2011 and 2018: 96 for the A.A.S. Human Services Transfer, 17 for the A.A.S. Human Services Pre-Social Work, and 20 for the A.A.S. Human Services (non-transfer degree, which was discontinued in 2015).
  • Graduate follow up surveys performed between academic years 2010-2015 indicate that on average 81 percent of respondents are continuing their education to earn a bachelor’s degree and that on average 27 percent of respondents were employed in the field of human services after graduation.
  • Faculty ratings by students have transitioned from a quantitative method to a qualitative evaluation, therefore, traditional number ratings are no longer collected. Qualitative narratives of student ratings of faculty members are available upon request.
  • The human services department utilizes an advisory committee in a variety of ways to enhance the overall programming offered to students. The committee meets once per semester (typically in fall and in spring terms) and includes both internal and external representation. Members represent a cross-section of public and private sector agencies in the community in disciplines relevant to human services. The human services advisory committee assists the program by providing information about current community needs and trends so that curricular and/or program changes can be implemented to address those needs and trends.
