Human services schools in Wisconsin offer postsecondary education programs that lead to a career as a human services worker. Human services workers help disadvantaged people meet their basic needs. People who utilize human services personnel may be suffering from poverty, drug addiction, alcoholism, domestic violence, sexual abuse or other similar problems. Human services workers help people of all ages from infants to elderly. Most human services programs are offered at two-year community colleges and result in the graduate obtaining an associate’s degree. Common classes include human services organizations, adult development and mental illness, group drug rehabilitation counseling, intakes and referrals, and the criminal justice system.
