Human & Social Services – Career
Massasoit’s Associate in Science in Human Services Career maximizes students’ opportunities for entry-level, professional job placement directly after graduation by emphasizing skill-building course work and practicum experiences.
Students in the Human Services Career program develop the knowledge and attitudes required to work effectively with people in a wide variety of professional settings.
Past graduates have found careers in nursing homes, mental health and developmental disability settings, day care centers, youth programs, alcohol and drug treatment programs, and in other social service agencies. Because many career paths within and outside of these professions require education beyond the associate degree, more than half of Massasoit Human Services graduates transfer to four-year colleges and universities to pursue bachelor’s degrees.
Human Services also offers a Transfer option.
Supervised field experience is an important part of both programs, as work and internships give students the opportunity to apply their newly acquired knowledge and skills to real life situations and to test potential career choices.
