Welcome to the Human Services Department at New York City College of Technology webpage. Human Services is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on preventing and remediating problems, while striving to improve the overall quality of life in our communities.
With allied fields in health, social work and psychology, our graduates concentrate their skills in the following areas:
Our graduates work with individuals, families and communities. Some work in schools, others in hospitals. Most of all, our work takes place in communities where our code of ethics charges us to work with unmet community needs. We are committed to treating those in need with dignity and respect, while empowering them through their personal choices and self-determination.
Our department's overall goals are professionalism and service: we strive to model and train students to be well-polished leaders who serve populations in need, and improve the well-being of our communities. Based on two years of field practicum, those who graduate from our program are prepared to enter the workforce with training and solid grounding in human services.
We have 26 full-time and part-time faculty who serve as leaders in the field by sitting on boards, leading programs, and elected positions of national leadership. Through ongoing research and scholarship, we contribute to the developing depth and breadth of knowledge in the field.
We hope you choose to join us. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a line or come to our open houses.
