Healthcare and Human Services

The healthcare and human services field is currently on the rise and the outlook for jobs after graduation is very good with expected growth to be higher than any other field. Healthcare is needed for every age, illness type and for prevention, so your role can change depending on which concentration you decide to focus on. The location of your job can change as well. Patients are seen in hospitals, small doctor’s offices, nursing facilities and even in homes.
