    Human Services Concentration Added to Bachelor of Science in Professional Studies

    Following the 2017 launch of the Bachelor of Science in Professional Studies (BSPS) in both health related professions and business, this fall the College will begin offering a BSPS with a concentration in human services. Completing the degree will provide opportunities for promotion in human service agencies, schools and health care facilities, in addition to qualifying for civil service exams.

    “We heard from many prospective students inquiring about adding this concentration,” said Pat Bliss, associate dean of the Purcell School of Professional Studies and director of the Center for Continuing Education. “Not only does adding this element to the BSPS program make sense from a market demand standpoint, but it also is in line with Le Moyne’s mission as a Jesuit institution.”

    The new concentration will require only minimal additional resources, with most courses already offered in evening and online formats. Each BSPS concentration requires completion of the College’s core curriculum (46 to 49 hours), a nine-credit professional studies core and between 33 and 39 credit hours of electives.

    The BSPS program is designed to provide working professionals with the opportunity to complete their degrees on a part-time basis. The program provides students with the chance to advance their career, establish a new one in a number of dynamic fields, or make application to graduate programs of interest at Le Moyne and elsewhere.
