About the College

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is dedicated to preparing adult learners as scholar-practitioners by expanding their knowledge of real-world social problems and preparing them as social work and human services professionals who provide ethical, evidence-based services to individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities.

  • Students are educated by an experienced faculty of doctoral-level scholars with a breadth of personal and professional experience in serving the needs of populations, human service organizations, and communities. Graduates will be equipped with interdisciplinary knowledge of contextually- and culturally-relevant assessments, intervention strategies, and evaluation methods that will enhance their service and change-agent skills in areas such as practice, collaboration, and advocacy for underserved and never-before-served global populations.

We will be leaders in our professions and our professional organizations through modeling 21st Century teaching and learning approaches and through scholarship appropriate to each educational level and our graduates will apply their acquired and generated knowledge to solve critical social problems in such a way as to promote positive social change for individuals, families, organizations, and communities.
