Program Information

The Human Services program is designed to prepare students to work with people of all ages. The curriculum is organized around a core of courses that provide skills and knowledge needed by human service workers. In addition to the General Human Services degree, there is one Associate in Science (AS) degree specialization in Substance Abuse Counseling.

The AS in Human Services with the Substance Abuse Counseling Specialization counts for 2000 of the 6000-hour work requirement for CSAC by the State of Hawaii, Alcohol, and Drug Abuse Division of the Department of Health. The Certificate of Completion in SAC I and II fulfill the educational requirements for State of Hawaii CSAC certification. Students must complete the Certificate of Completion in Substance Abuse Counseling (21 credits) with a minimum C grade or better in each course.

Upon successful completion of the HSER Program, the student should be able to:

    1. Develop interpersonal skills that build appropriate, collaborative, respectful relationships with fellow students in the classroom and clients and professionals in the practicum setting.
    2. Demonstrate the attitudes, skills and knowledge base of client-centered, evidence- based helping strategies with a variety of populations in diverse human service settings.
    3. Identify vulnerable populations and the social conditions that contribute to their vulnerability; consider advocacy strategies to help alleviate those conditions.
    4. Develop self-awareness of one’s own values, interpersonal interaction styles, strengths and challenges that will impact the development of professionalism.
    5. Demonstrate knowledge of and application of the values and attitudes of code of ethics commonly used in the field of specialization (e.g. NASW, CSAC, etc.)
