Human Services: Family Violence Intervention Option

Provides the student with a broad knowledge base through core classes in Human Services, and with the knowledge and skills essential to working with perpetrators as well as victims of abuse. Domestic violence is a growing societal problem that may be addressed through competent counseling by trained professionals who understand the dynamics involved. This program also provides students with a liberal arts background and application-oriented instruction in a broad range of Human Services skills. The student who chooses the Family Violence Option will participate in a field experience, working within the domestic violence and family violence network.
