Earn your Cazenovia College bachelor's degree in Human Services on the campus of Finger Lakes Community College in Geneva. Expanding your education from an associate degree to a bachelor's degree can lead to a career in the growing field of human services.
The Alcohol and Substance Abuse concentration of the Human Services program provides students with an overview of counseling and support services for this population. Leading to a Bachelor of Science degree, the program's curriculum addresses the history of human services related to alcohol and substance abuse treatment, past and current theoretical approaches, and the rehabilitation trends in the field.
Upon successful completion of this degree, you will fulfill the Credentialed Alcohol Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) education requirements (350 hours) for future certification as a New York State Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor. For more information about the CASAC program, visit the OASAS website.
All Human Services students enrolled in this program are required to complete one course, HS-475 Program Planning and Evaluation, on the Cazenovia College campus. This course will be offered over two weekends each summer. Housing and meal plans are available for nominal costs.
Students who have an associate degree in Human Services or Chemical Dependency are eligible. Students who have not earned an associate degree in Human Services or Chemical Dependency may be eligible for this program but will need to take additional coursework.
