Human services covers a wide range of careers, all of which center around working to support people, communities, and public interest. Careers in this field can be quite challenging as clients are often people in crisis, but the people best suited for this field find helping people in need very rewarding. Human services positions can be very hands on with the public, may be entirely behind-the-scenes office work, or somewhere in between.

People who work in human services are most often referred to as social workers, though this field covers people who work in healthcare, community groups, and advocacy organizations. Human services employees are most often involved in some aspect of assessing the needs of a particular client and creating a plan for assisting them. Depending on which career in the human services field you are interested in, the amount of education necessary can also vary widely. Some positions are available to people who have a GED or high school diploma, but most of the advanced careers with highest salaries require at least a bachelor's degree and often a master's.

Employment opportunities for social workers are expected to grow faster than the average in the coming years. The need for social workers and the services they provide is constantly increasing, especially in the areas of elder care, mental health, and substance abuse. (BLS) As the need for these services increases, and regulations require that they be made available to more members of the population, the need for qualified social workers will grow to meet demand. The best prospects for jobs can be found in rural areas where communities suffer from a lack of qualified human services providers; competition for jobs can be serious in urban areas where social work training is prevalent. Though salaries vary widely depending on job title, location, and speciality, most social workers earn between $35,000 and $55,000 per year.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Our tuition numbers reflect data collected from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site, GradReports.com.
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
