Human Services Courses

The field of human services attracts well-organized people with excellent communication skills and a desire to improve the lives of others. Graduates of BMCC’s Human Services program start their careers as social work assistants, youth workers, gerontology aides, or community outreach workers, or in other roles where the focus is helping people. They assist clients in building skills for everyday life and guide them to vital services such as childcare, housing and job training. They lead group activities, administer food banks, and update case records in clinics, women’s shelters, group homes, hospitals—connecting a community’s most vulnerable members to resources that build their independence and quality of life. Some students who major in Human Services pursue further study in social work or related fields.
