Human Services Technology
The Human Services Technology curriculum prepares students for entry-level positions in institutions and agencies, which provide social, community, and educational services. Along with core courses, students take general education courses, which prepare them for eventual specialization in specific human service areas.
Students will take courses from a variety of academic disciplines. Core courses emphasize the development of relevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to work successfully in human services. Fieldwork or internship experience will provide opportunities for the practical application of knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.
Graduates should qualify for positions in mental health, child care, family services, social services, rehabilitation, corrections, and educational agencies. Graduates choosing to continue their education may select from a variety of transfer programs at four-year public and private institutions.
Note: All or some of the courses in this program may transfer to a 4-year institution. Please see your advisor and/or transfer institution of interest
GTCC no longer offers the Mental Health concentration. Both of our current degree offerings, Human Services/Generalist and Human Services/Substance Abuse, incorporate mental health coursework into the program requirements. Those who are interested in the mental health concentration should consult the North Carolina Community College System for details on program offerings.
