Additionally, the department offers the Child Advocacy certification and the Nonprofit Leadership certificate which are open to both majors and non-majors.
Human Services Spring 2016 students presented their advanced internship research project posters. Students who completed the requirements for the CAST and NLA programs were awarded their certificates of achievement, and many students shared with faculty the employment opportunities waiting for them upon graduation.
The MSW program is in receipt of a Title IV-E subgrant from the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) through the efforts of Drs. Kirk and McClatchey.

Upon graduation, the grant recipients are committed to working for DFCS for two years.
