Communities today require a variety of social services to provide for the economic and emotional needs of those in difficulty.  Agencies on a variety of levels require trained individuals to provide such services.  Some of the programs have positions available for those with two years of college instruction.  The Human Service program prepares students to work in a community setting or beginning paraprofessional level, to train as aides in welfare eligibility work, mental health and other social service agency positions.  Students will be required to spend several hours weekly as community service interns during the two-year program.  The student can select to earn a Certificate and/or a Degree in Human Services (Social Work).  Students who want to transfer to another university after COS should meet with a COS counselor for transfer requirements in this major.
