This degree is offered by AU Midwest.
The Human Services Administration major emphasizes knowledge and skills in several areas:
- Human development across the span of life
- Principles of effective management and the functioning of organizations
- The wider social context of organizations
- Skills for effective management
The Human Services Administration major prepares practitioners who desire to be effective leaders in a variety of human service agencies. This major prepares students to work in an administrative capacity in nonprofit and state agencies, health care and counseling centers, and community-based organizations delivering social services.
The length of time it will take a student to complete a degree depends upon (1) the number of credits transferred into the program and (2) the number of credit hours taken each term. To estimate the length of time to complete the program, students may wish to subtract the number of credits they will transfer from the 120 credits required for graduation. The student should then divide the number of credits remaining to be completed by the number of credits s/he may take per semester. The result is a rough estimate of the number of semesters required to complete the program. Students are encouraged to move through the program at a comfortable rate taking into consideration personal and professional obligations as well as educational goals.
To earn a Bachelor’s degree at Antioch University Midwest, students will have a combination of transfer credits and required Antioch University Midwest credits totaling 120 credits.

Designed for the Busy Adult Learner
Antioch University Midwest was recognized by U.S. News and World Report as the number one school based on the percentage of students, age 25 or older, enrolled in undergraduate programs in the 2014-2015 academic year.
The recent announcement on the U.S. News website states: “Not all students set out for college immediately after high school graduation. Some enlist in the military, spend time in the workforce or take time off to travel the world. For those who choose to go to college later in life, having classmates who reflect their age, interests and experiences can help ease the transition from the ‘real world’ to the world of an undergraduate student.”
As part of AUM’s ongoing commitment to make college tuition as affordable as possible, we have partnered with Clark State Community College, Sinclair Community College in Mason, and Southern State Community College to offer 3+1 agreements which allow students who have finished certain associate’s degrees to seamlessly continue on to earn a bachelor’s degree from AUM.
