Department of Sociology and Human Services

Sociology is the systematic study of the social behavior of individuals as well as the working of social groups, organizations, cultures and societies. Study in sociology provides a scientific perspective for studying the effects of cultural and social forces on individuals, groups, and institutions.

Students selecting the Human Services major typically desire positons in institutions, private and public, which provide direct services to diverse groups in our society.  The curriculum includes required and elective courses, advising, and a supervised field experience in one or more human services agencies.

“Being a non-traditional student living off campus in the late 60’s, I did not participate in nor learn to appreciate happenings on the HSU (then HSTC) campus as I might have. For some reason, the farther I get away from the actual time spent at Henderson as a student, the more I come to love and appreciate it. I could never repay or catch up with the kindnesses Henderson has sent my way!”
