Few careers are as rewarding as those that involve working with people. Individuals who choose these paths build stronger communities and improve people’s quality of life.

The School of Human Services and Community Safety can help you navigate your path. We offer 17 diploma, certificate and applied certificate programs that lead to employment in areas such as early childhood education, disability services, correctional and justice services, occupational health and safety, and beauty culture. One career you may not have considered is funeral services. You’ll reap the benefits of small classes, hands-on labs and work placements where you can put theory into practice. And if you want to further your education, some of our programs allow you to transfer your credits to a university degree program.

Human Services and Community Safety offers ample options for a satisfying and meaningful career. I hope to see you on campus!
