Course Description:

Delivering Human Services is an upper-division course designed to bring together prior learning regarding consumers, agencies and communities that were covered in previous courses. The course covers advanced case management, agency structure and administration and working with communities on the group level. The course is delivered primarily in a case study format with students focusing on an in-depth analysis of systems and practices in one human services agency of their choice throughout the course. Much of the learning comes from interaction with other students who share their experiences in a wide variety of settings. Human Services Delivery partially meets Community and Human Service Area of Study requirements in skills, ethics, and practical experience.

Delivering Human Services may be seen primarily as a capstone course for students concentrating in Community and Human Services.

Important Note: this course was renamed effective the January 2012 term and was formerly offered as Human Services Delivery. Students who have successfully completed 253114 should not enroll in this course.
