Concentration in Community Services


The Community Services Concentration

The Community Services concentration within the Liberal Studies Baccalaureate degree is designed to meet a variety of student needs.  Having a transdiciplinary orientation, combining rehabilitation, psychology and sociology, the program allows students to select courses from these disciplines based upon specific interests and future career goals.  Those who have an interest in human services, sociology, or psychology but have not targeted a specific post-graduate outcome would also benefit from the interdisciplinary approach of the concentration.  This concentration targets students who seek work in a variety of community agencies after graduation, or who want to continues their education with graduate study.
