These areas can lead to a variety of career fields in human services such as counseling or social work or education. All of these areas explore people and their interactions with each other and the environments around them. These degrees help set a solid foundation for students to transfer to a four-year university.
AA degrees and certificates emphasize in humanities/social sciences, including a foreign language. AS degrees and certificates emphasize in math/science.
