The College of Health and Human Services regularly holds information sessions or open houses designed to introduce prospective students to its degree or certificate programs. There is no better way to learn about our programs than attending one of these events. You’ll have an opportunity to meet with the faculty who actually teach the courses, and you’ll be able to ask questions about prerequisites, degree requirements and the profession itself. Upcoming information sessions are listed below.
