Wellstar College of Health and Human Services
Department of Social Work and Human Services
Human Services, B.S. (Nonprofit Management and Social Innovation Concentration)
The Human Services (HS) major specifically prepares students to pursue careers in the field of human services in a variety of public, nonprofit, and private organizations. Students may choose a concentration either in (a) social engagement and advocacy (formerly case management) or (b) nonprofit management and social innovation (formerly nonprofit management). All majors graduate with competencies in communication, assessment, advocacy, documentation, community networking, cultural competence, social policy, civic engagement, and professional/career development. These competencies are established by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education (CSHSE).
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Human Services - Nonprofit Management and Social Innovation Concentration degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2018 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, students must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.)
Total Program Credit Hours: 120

Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.
Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.
This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.
You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
