Human Service professionals work with diverse populations providing a wide variety of social, personal and health services depending on need. Potential career paths include becoming a case worker, social advocate, welfare service professional, child welfare professional or law enforcement.

Meet adult learner Dimirra Brown, a senior human services major from Pennsauken, NJ (Camden County) who aspires to continue to be a leader and impact people’s lives. 

“The sky is the limit. We need more activists. We need more listening learners. We need more people that are willing to help. I am so glad that I came back to Rowan. It has been an awesome ride,” says Dimirra.

Human services changes lives and makes a positive difference in society. Ever since she was little, Dimirra has been a leader through giving back to others. Working in healthcare for 20 years, she made a switch from nursing to human services, which comes naturally her. In fact, she feels it’s where she thrives the most. She returned to school to pursue this degree as an adult learner, at her own pace.
