Caring for others is more than a career path: it's a mission. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for human services professionals is expected to grow 22 percent from 2008 to 2018, much of it driven by a need for professionals experienced working with aging, diverse and vulnerable populations. As government-funded programs face budget cutbacks, the need will grow for private agencies to fill the gap. Concordia University, Nebraska's programming prepares you to lead and respond with compassion and effectiveness. Our online Master of Human Services (MHS) program allows you to further your education while maintaining family and career commitments.
