Welcome to the Department of Human Services


The College has limited advisement during the summer since only assigned professors will provide advisement on a given day/time.


Students must send three documents to the Advisor:

  1. Completed Advisement Guide
  2. Student Degree Works Audit (no screen shots, only documents)
  3. NYC Tech Transcript (no screen shots, only documents)

Please read the below instructions carefully to best experience the advisement.

  1. Send your questions/inquiries only to those advisors on the summer advisement schedule.
  2. If you need advisement, do your homework first.
    1. YOUR HOMEWORK: Complete your advisement guide with using your degree works and transcript.
  3. Send below three items 30 mins before you join the zoom.
    If sending your homework 30 mins prior to the zoom session does not work with your schedule, send them on the day of the advisement.
    It works best and more efficiently if you send your stuff right before the advisement.
    1. Completed advisement guide (that YOU worked on)
    2. Copy of your degreeworks (in pdf, NO SCREENSHOTS OR PICTURES)
    3. Copy of your transcript (in pdf, NO SCREENSHOTS OR PICTURES)
  4. Do NOT send your same inquires to all three advisors. Just choose the time you wish to be advised, and send your information/questions to an advisor assigned to that session.
  5. If you could not see an advisor at that time, then do #3 for the next available advisor.

Be mindful as you may have to wait in the zoom waiting room for a good amount of time as zoom advisement is individual advisement.
Students will be advised on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Mission Statement

The Human Services Department of New York College of Technology educates students to be change agents, working with individuals, groups, and communities.

What is Human Services?

Human Services is a profession that is a learned craft, coupled with the social, cultural, economic, political and biological aspects of a society. In addition, individuals, family and communities are often the focus of agents in need of services, which a human service professional can provide. To deliver these services, the human service student is exposed to various professional and liberal arts learning at CityTech, where the associate and bachelor human service degree curriculum aids in this important preparation. Students then apply this knowledge to quality direct practice, using their educational skills in multiple employment arenas of their choice.

A degree in human services prepares students to work in the large field of social services. This can include attending to disorders (developmental/intellectual, physical, mental health/substance use), child and family welfare, older adults/gerontology, victim related services, social/legal advocacy and several at- risk/vulnerable populations in need of well-being. CityTech offers curriculum in health, mental health, counseling, case management, advocacy, entitlements, cultural competency, internship field practice, research and management-all which establish a foundation for community based practice in multiple facets of service delivery.

Human service students showcase their professional skills in settings which often include hospitals, behavioral health centers, nursing homes, schools, shelters, community based agencies, and within public health and social justice initiatives. Students utilize their skill set to conduct intakes, assessments, treatment plans, referrals, lead groups, complete research and data collection, counseling, promote community needs, prepare grants, budgeting and advocacy, as well as understanding the navigation of the larger social service system. Students practice these skills in four semesters of internship and acquire knowledge of the operation of community based agencies, as well as the types of care and services a human service worker can provide.

Often, the Human Services Associate Degree student will transfer early into the Bachelor of Science Degree program, recognizing the increased educational and employment opportunities that support the profession. Afterwards, many graduates pursue higher education in related fields: Masters in Social Work; Mental Health Counseling; Disability Services; Clinical Psychology, Education; Guidance, Public Health and Public Administration.

The comprehensive, generalist, human services curriculum at CityTech prepares students for an all inclusive experience in field, from pursuing experiences as a counselor, outreach worker, residence manager, social worker, probation officer, disability specialist, addictions counselor, patient advocate, recreation worker, health educator, advocate, to graduate student, the human service degree 'opens doors' that have a common mission, and educational requirement. Since the field is broad, students have several options to hone their acquired human service skills, and an associate degree-leading to the bachelors-is one of the best preparations.


Our degree programs are accredited by the Council for Standards in Human Services Education.
