Bachelor of Science: Liberal Studies
with a concentration in Human Services 

The Bachelor of Science Degree with a Human Services Concentration is designed for the student with considerable transfer credit in liberal arts areas who desires a Bachelor of Science degree for entry into various fields.  This degree requires at least 120 semester hours of course work and is designed to supplement learning already achieved, including strengthening it with the Miller College Core courses (which are part of the General Education Requirements) and additional Liberal Arts and Human Services classes.  Students must successfully complete 45 semester hours at the 300/400 level with at least 30 semester hours at Miller College and meet all Miller College graduation requirements to receive this degree.  In keeping with the College Mission, students are expected to complete one hour of service learning for every hour they are enrolled at Miller College.  Service learning may be performed at any time prior to completion of the Senior Seminar.  The purpose of this guide is to outline the Human Services program’s requirements.  Please be aware that your catalog year and requirements are determined by the first semester in which you actually take classes at Miller College.
