Human Services Case Management and Administration


The Certificate in Human Services Case Management and Administration, administered by the Department of Human Development, is designed to assist students in building a theoretical and applied understanding of working with people in a variety of human service settings including, but not limited to, social service agencies, health care agencies, non-profits, and educational institutions.
