The Associate of Science Degree program in Human Services prepares students to work with individuals who are consumers of the human services delivery system, providing them with direct services and linking them with other community services and resources. Graduates of the Human Services program may be employed in a variety of agencies, which provide supports to individuals and families across the life span. That work may be in the field of developmental disabilities, behavioral health, elderly or children and families at risk.

Some human services positions require education beyond an associate degree. This program has articulation agreements with New England College, Franklin Pierce University and Springfield College. Human Service graduates have also successfully transferred to other area colleges.

The College offers Certificate Programs in Human Services or Early Intervention/Family Support Assistant, providing students with the major courses required for beginning level positions, as well as providing them with an entry point for the continuation of studies. All Certificate courses have been incorporated into the Human Services Degree Program.

The Human Services Program Outcomes can be found on the College's web site (Human Services Program page) and in the program's handbook.

Many of the programs offered at River Valley Community College may be combined with the Human Services program for a dual degree option.

The applicant for the Human Services program should meet the general requirements for admission to the College. A Criminal Background Check is the responsibility of students and may be required for fieldwork and/or employment upon request of an agency. (Please see the full Criminal Background Check Policy in the Admissions section of this catalog.) Students are required to have liability and health insurance prior to being placed for fieldwork. Transportation to all fieldwork assignments in the responsibility of the student.
