If you’re passionate about helping people, a degree in Human Services from San Juan College will prepare you to enter these occupations.

At SJC you’ll not only receive core foundational courses, you’ll also gain real-world knowledge and skills through a community internship practicum. Our students are making a difference in the community through service learning at over 50 regional organizations, such as: Adult and Juvenile Probation, CYFD, Farmington Police Department, Four Winds Treatment Center, Overcomers Counseling, Casa Child Advocacy and Cottonwood Clinical Services. You may have a job lined up before you even graduate!
