Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals

The Human Services program, faculty, staff, and students follow and adhere to the Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals as outlined by the National Organization for Human Services. By declaring the Human Services major or minor, students agree to read and follow these standards while enrolled in any Human Services coursework, activity, volunteer work, internship, or when representing the University of Northern Colorado Human Services program. The standards are available online at http://www.nationalhumanservices.org/ethical-standards-for-hs-professionals, and it is students' responsibility to access them. Violation of the codes may result in grade adjustment in the associated class, failure of the class, and/or removal from the Human Services major/minor.

When students are accepted into the Human Services major or minor, they agree to follow the Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals. 

If you have any questions about the ethical standards, please contact Program Coordinator David Greene.

Internship Information

Human Services majors are required to complete 12 credits of internship for their degree. Students work with our internship coordinator to plan and arrange their internship the semester prior to enrollment. 

Students may complete their internship at any approved human services organization. There is a wide variety of agencies and organizations that provide valuable services to the public and students are encouraged to research and explore options on their own prior to meeting Dr. Greene. 

Here is a sample list of agencies where Human Services students have completed their internships recently. This list is not exhaustive and will change periodically. If you have any questions regarding the internship process, please email your advisor.
