Explore Specific Human Services Fields

Spend some time getting to know the specific sub-fields that make up the Human Services Professions.  Actively explore by talking with professionals in specific fields and reading about different career paths.  Look over professional organization websites and consider joining as a student member. You can also look up useful information about careers and average salaries of various positions at a U.S. government department of Labor website.

Our students choose from a variety of fields within Human Services. You can find information about the following popular fields at these professional organization websites:


Drug and Alcohol Treatment:

Students who complete our Substance Abuse Treatment & Prevention Track can learn about becoming certified addictions treatment counselor (CATC) from the California Association for Alcohol/Drug Educators.

Education/School Settings:

The HUSR Elementary Education track is for students who are planning careers teaching elementary school. Students who wish to become teachers should regularly consult with the HUSR adviser, Lorraine Klein, who will help in choosing necessary courses.  One of the admission requirements for the multiple subject credential program to become a teacher is to establish subject matter competency by passing the Multiple Subject CSET. In order to strengthen weak academic areas, students are advised to take courses in subject areas where they feel least prepared. All students interested in teaching may obtain further information regarding teaching credential requirements in the Center for Careers in Teaching (CCT) located in Humanities 113 (278-7130). The CCT website provides detailed information about the CSET and other credential admission requirements.
