The WU Human Services Department offers concentrations in victim/survivor services as an academic certificate and as a bachelor degree option. Human Services courses at the undergraduate level combine general education, human services coursework, and internships with an individualized program of study in victim/survivor services. The degree programs emphasize a multidisciplinary perspective, preparing students to assist people and their communities to function as effectively as possible. Recommended and required coursework focus on knowledge and skills in human behavior, group dynamics, organizational behavior, and community systems.
In consultation with a faculty advisor, a total of 15 additional credit hours must be selected in the Victim/ Survivor Services concentration area. Of these hours, at least 12 credit hours must be HS coursework, 3 hours must be selected from another discipline relating to the area of emphasis, and a minimum of 6 hours must be upper division courses.
