Human services schools in Minnesota prepare students for one of many rewarding careers in the human services industry. The overarching goal of any human services program is to teach the students to help people meet their basic emotional and physical needs. Human services workers make a positive impact on children, adults, elderly, and the community. Most programs offer two-year associate’s degrees. Typical courses include drug rehabilitation counseling, intake, assessment and referral, group therapy, the criminal justice system, overview of human services agencies, human development, and medical aspects of human services. Human services occupations are expected to grow at a faster rate than many occupations due to increased demand.
