Overview

Informed by Webster’s core values of inclusivity, social justice and global perspective, the human services curriculum teaches graduate students how to assist and empower diverse individuals, groups, families, and communities in need of assistance. Human services students learn to challenge their interpersonal assumptions and develop a culturally-competent approach to caring for all who need it.

Expert faculty provide a learning environment that fosters critical thinking, welcomes local and global perspectives, and encourages field experience so that human services alumni have the theoretical and skill-based background necessary to meet the needs of vulnerable populations. 

The Human Services curriculum at Webster University is designed to prepare students for professional careers in human and social service agencies.
