HUMAN SERVICES DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

Human services is not incredibly popular. Each major hands out roughly 6,200 yearly four-year degrees; 6,503 students last year completed a bachelor's degree in human services, making it the USA's 72nd most popular course of study. Grand Canyon University​ accounted for more of those degrees than any other American school (663), and colleges in Arizona handed out more degrees than any U.S. State (1,210).

Four-year degrees in human services are offered at 199 colleges across the nation; accordingly, singling out the right college can be hard. Only 3.7% more institutions offer bachelor's degrees in human services than the average subject, making it the 103rd most commonly available American degree.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While 83% of degrees in human services last spring were undergrad degrees; 17% were advanced degrees. Human services is the 105th most popular advanced degree in the USA, with 1,291 degrees granted. For some context, human services is 53% less popular among postgrads than the average subject.

In Total, 7,794 students received a bachelor's or higher in human services last year.

ONLINE HUMAN SERVICES DEGREES

3,019 of those 7,794 alumni (38.7%) went through totally online programs - 2,200 undergraduate students and 819 postgrads. As you've presumably gathered, human services is a very popular online undergraduate subject. It's the 18th most popular remote major with 4.6 times the U.S. average of 481 undergrads per area of study. For postgraduate students, it ranks 39th, and is 33% over the US average (616).

The University of Phoenix-Arizona​ awarded more online undergraduate degrees in human services than any other school in the United States of America (524). Last fall, 72,003 undergrad students were attending the institution entirely online, 99% of their students. They offer 38 completely remote courses of study, which is 100% of their courses.

Moreover, Arizona graduates more human services online students than any other state (985 undergrad degrees conferred last year). Arizona alone accounts for 45% of the major's remote students.

33.8% of all undergraduate degrees in human services are completed remote, (63.4% for grad degrees). 19.3% of Ottawa University-Milwaukee's​ last undergraduate class studied human services remote, higher than any other institution in the nation. 15 students in their 77 student class earned an online undergrad degree in human services. They offer 16 programs online, and had 109 enrolled online undergraduate students last fall. That's 83% of the student body.

74 institutions in the United States of America award undergraduate degrees through an online program, making it the 103rd most widely offered online area of study in the US. 37% of schools awarding the degree even have an exclusively remote option, and there are 3 private colleges offering undergraduate degrees in human services for each public institution. Indiana has the most fully online programs of any state, with 6 schools to choose from.

If you would like to study human services exclusively online, you should apply to Southern Wesleyan University, as it has the 9th best human services program in the United States of America. They also offer an additional 9 degrees remotely, so their systems are likely good. Further, there are 348 remote undergraduate students enrolled, which is 30% of their undergraduate population.
