Would a Bachelor of Arts degree (with a major in Psychology) be considered a "BA in Human Services"?

Asked by Mama_Cakes (9315 points ) April 19th, 2012

Would it work?

Also, what exactly is a degree in human services? Does that include social work?

Here’s a brief overview of the human services degree. Most of the time, Human Services is considered a separate field from psychology, though some colleges offer psych degrees with a concentration in human services. There appears to be some overlap between the two disciplines, so if you’re interested in a job posting that’s targeted primarily at Human Services grads, you could still apply. Just make sure that in your cover letter, you illustrate how your degree and work/internship experience are a match for the position.
