Keeping with the Albertus Magnus College values of community, study, and service, the Master of Science in Human Services is a 39 credit graduate program designed to prepare students to pursue rewarding careers in a wide variety of human and social service settings. With courses like Case Management, Counseling Techniques, and Addictions Counseling, students gain advanced professional knowledge and skills to work in leadership positions with a diverse range of clients and populations.
The M.S. in Human Services also requires 3-6 credits of field-based experience in a private or public human service agency, which provides students with opportunities to pursue careers that match their personal interests. Through the College’s partnerships with nonprofit organizations, local schools, state agencies, housing developments, and urban coalitions, students are exposed to many opportunities that exist in the field of human services and are given the advantage to network with many prominent community leaders.
The Master of Science in Human Services is offered in our eight-week accelerated format. All of our classes are held either on campus two evenings per week or in the blended format. (Students taking blended courses enjoy the best of “both worlds” as they meet in the classroom one day per week and then work on assignments and projects online for the second class session.)
The Master of Science in Human Services prepares students to demonstrate the following skills and abilities:
Students are required to have a minimum of 15 credits in psychology, human services, and/or social work as a prerequisite to beginning coursework in the M.S. in Human Services.
Students must also demonstrate graduate level writing ability or take Writing and Research in Social Sciences, HS 550, after the first mod as one of the two electives in the program.
Students may apply for admission to the program at the start of the fall in Mod 1 or in the spring in Mod 3. All new student applications must be complete and submitted to the Director of the Masters in Human Services at least six weeks prior to starting the program.
All application materials should be sent to:
