蓝色书包的学生在新闻发布会上

Students earning a degree in human 服务 often are attracted to one of several career tracks:

  1. 个人服务,如咨询、康复、娱乐或宗教.
  2. 保护服务, 比如公共卫生服务, 法院, 执法, 消费者保护或消防.
  3. Information or advising 服务, such as financial counseling, hotlines or libraries.
  4. 维护服务, 例如儿童保育, 失业援助, 公共福利或社会保障项目.

人类服务是一个比社会工作更广泛的研究领域, 主要是因为它包括了执法等其他社会服务, 图书馆服务和住房法规执行, 以及传统上被归类为社会福利服务的项目.
