The Human Services & Social Justice Program provides students with opportunities to develop critical knowledge, skills, and practical experiences. Faculty members are devoted to and actively engaged with students as well as many organizations within Washington, DC.

Our students experience a unique combination of classroom and site learning. This creates a dynamic educational experience that enables students to design, analyze, implement, and evaluate social programs, provide service to individuals, and experience cross cultural and interpersonal interaction.

  • Advocacy
