Help yourself help others.
Through the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program in human services offered at the Norwich Campus of SUNY Morrisville, you will prepare to help individuals, families and communities through a variety of support services, including crisis intervention, direct support, counseling and case management. You will learn to offer assistance to those seeking guidance and how to deliver that service in many different locations, including in homes, schools, hospitals or nonprofit agencies.
You will immediately immerse yourself through two required internships in your first semester. With a 125-hour practicum in your last semester, you will have the skills to get right to work helping those in need.
SUNY Morrisville graduates make a difference as domestic violence advocates, substance abuse case managers, children's health home case managers, outpatient mental health intake specialists, adolescent residential program counselors and special education teaching assistants, and direct support professionals for people with developmental disabilities.
While you’ll be ready to make a difference directly following graduation, you may also decide to transfer elsewhere to pursue a bachelor’s degree focusing on managerial roles within the profession.
Enhance your college experience by joining Morrisville’s Human Services Organization, a student club that provides you opportunities outside of the classroom to volunteer in the community. These valuable additional learning experiences include have food drives, fundraising and events for children and families.
