Choose the WLC human social services program.

The human social services program at Wisconsin Lutheran College combines the strengths and perspectives of communication, psychology and religious studies. This interdisciplinary major provides students with a broad exposure within the liberal arts. Students pursuing a degree in HSS will learn to enhance the physical, emotional, social and spiritual quality of the life for those in need. The HSS major offers content and experiences designed to develop innovative practitioners able to integrate knowledge, theory, practice, research skills, servant leadership and cultural sensitivity within community organizations.

Though the HSS major is not equivalent to a bachelor's of social work, the student graduating with a HSS major will be prepared to improve accessibility, accountability and coordination among the multiple professionals and service agencies designed to provide support, education, resources and/or assistance to diverse populations.
