Human Services Professionals in Demand
The Rasmussen College Human Services AcceleratED Bachelor’s degree program comes as the demand for social and community service managers is on the rise. Nationally, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 21 percent job growth by 2022. The College’s program is designed to meet the needs of today’s human services professionals by providing experiential learning opportunities that immerse students in the multi-disciplinary field of human services.
