The diaconal service of caring for widows, orphans, and the poor has historically been a ministry of the Church. The Department of Family and Human Services seeks to better equip for this service by offering a bachelor’s program in Family and Human Services and a minor in Family and Human Services. This innovative curriculum, which follows the course guidelines of the National Council for Family Relations, incorporates Family and Human Services courses with course work from other departments to provide the student with theological, theoretical, and practical training. Students who have earned the degree in Family and Human Services serve in a variety of capacities such as family educators, family caseworkers, social workers, youth counselors, mental health technicians, dispute mediators, foster care caseworkers, and adoption and placement counselors. The degree in Family and Human Services provides an excellent foundation for graduate programs in marriage and family therapy, professional counseling, social work, and other related fields.
