Human & Social Services – Transfer
Massasoit’s Associate in Science in Human Services – Transfer option allows graduates to transfer directly into their junior year at other Massachusetts state colleges. Most students transfer into human services, sociology, psychology, social work, or education programs.
Students in the Human Services Transfer program develop the skills, 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 Career 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.
