If you enjoy working with people and have interest in counseling, psychology, social work, or sociology, then a career in Human Services might be the perfect fit for you. Fisher College's Human Services program combines many disciplines to offer students the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to secure employment in this exciting field. Broad areas include jobs in the health care sector (hospitals, mental health clinics), community organizations (homeless shelters, centers for victims of abuse and assault), and social agencies (working with adults and children with developmental delays, substance abuse problems, Department of Human Services, and more).
As Boston is a wonderfully diverse, cosmopolitan city, you’ll find the program emphasizes diversity and multicultural awareness. With many excellent hospitals and social services agencies in the area, Fisher's Human Services degree program is committed to providing a comprehensive educational experience to students, incorporating internship experiences and courses that focus extensively on discussion and role plays, emphasizing counseling skills, ethics, and crisis intervention.
For those who wish to continue on and pursue a graduate degree after completing their Bachelor of Science in Human Services, Fisher's program prepares students for graduate work in marriage and family therapy, professional counseling, social work, and psychology.
