Bachelor's Degrees

B.A. in Human Services

The Human Services program prepares professionals to work in a variety of settings as case managers, advocates, grant writers, youth workers, volunteer coordinators, human resource specialists, fundraisers, trainers, paraeducators or advocacy specialists for victims of child abuse, domestic violence, homelessness, or other social issues. The human services profession promotes improved service delivery systems by addressing not only the quality of direct services, but by also seeking to improve accessibility, accountability, coordination, and collaboration among professionals and agencies to attain the highest quality of life with the least amount of intervention.

Western’s interdisciplinary TESOL Certificate Program is designed to provide training in linguistics, grammar, second language acquisition, and methodology.
