If helping others is at the core of everything you want out of a career, the Human Services program of York College of Pennsylvania is the perfect choice - and at York College, you'll get your chance to help people early and often.


Join one of the fastest-growing professions that suits a wide array of jobs, from social work and family therapy to care manager and probation officer. There won’t be a semester lacking in hands-on human services experience; by sophomore year you’ll be placed in a community agency.

To make the Human Services program of York College of Pennsylvania even more attractive to employers, we recently changed the name of the program from Behavioral Science to Human Services. Why? Employers and graduate programs are specifically looking for Human Services in applicants, so this gives you one more advantage. Plus, small class sizes and professors who get great joy out of being mentors give you the support you need to thrive. We also give you the chance to add a specialty area of study: criminal justice, youth development, not-for-profit management, and gerontology.
