What is Human Services?
The Human Services Technology Program is accredited by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education. The HST Program is the first and currently the only human services program in Georgia to receive national accreditation.
Human services workers find jobs in community health and mental health centers, family, child and youth agencies, group homes, public health, agencies that work with individuals with a range of disabilities, and agencies or programs dealing with alcoholism, drug abuse, family violence and aging.
