PCC’s Human Services Technology program prepares students for entry-level positions in institutions and agencies which provide social, community, and educational services.

Along with core courses, students take courses which prepare them for specialization in specific human service areas. Emphasis in core courses is placed on development of relevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes in human services.

Fieldwork experience will provide opportunities for application of knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.

Students can also apply to take the Human Services Board Certified Practitioner Exam upon graduation with an Associate’s Degree in Human Services Technology, which will allow them to become certified as Human Services Board Practitioners (HS-BCP).
