About the Program
Social and human service professionals are crucial to a community. You could work in a variety of settings performing numerous duties, including organizing and leading group activities, providing counseling or crisis intervention, and administering food banks or emergency programs. Additionally, you could work in halfway houses, group homes, and government-supported housing programs helping adults who need supervision with life-planning strategies and daily-living skills (such as reviewing clients’ records, ensuring they take correct doses of medication, networking with family members, medical personnel and other caregivers to more effectively help their clients), and providing emotional support and helping clients engage in self-determination.
CCD’s human services program is nationally accredited by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education. Upon completion of the AAS Human Services transfer degree at CCD, you may transfer to Metropolitan State University of Denver's Bachelor of Science program in Human Services. You may also choose to complete the AAS Human Services Pre-Social Work degree, which would prepare you for transfer to Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Bachelor in Social Work program. Effective Fall 2017, a new transfer agreement with the University of Colorado Denver (UCD) also facilitates transfer into their Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Relations through the UCD School of Education and Human Development.
