Notes and Additional Curriculum Options
- MEN 102 must be successfully completed before enrolling in MEN 190 and MEN 196 or MEN 290 and MEN 296.
- Students entering public or private sectors of human services may be subjected to criminal background and sex offender registry checks and a TB screening as a condition of their placement in a training/practicum site. Students will be expected to cover any costs incurred for these procedures. This may also be required as a condition of employment.
- Students who are convicted felons or are on the sex offender registry in any state will not be able to secure internship sites. This will prevent them from completing the requirements for the Human Services degrees and certificates.
- All students who plan to pursue a degree or certification in Human Services are required to complete a 100 hour internship. Students will secure their own internship sites prior to the start of their MEN 190 and MEN 196 classes or their MEN 290 and MEN 296 classes. All internships must be approved by the Human Services and Mental Health Program chair.
- Students who are 18 years or younger may not be able to secure an internship. Should students be unable to secure an internship, they will be unable to complete the requirements of the Human Services degree and therefore be unable to graduate.
