      Read on for more information about some of the most popular career options for graduates with a degree in health and human services.

      Social Work Assistant

      Although a specific master's degree in social work is required to become a licensed social worker in most states, a bachelor's degree in health and human services is sufficient to become a social work assistant. This job entails working directly with people to improve their health, their living situation or their family relationships.

      Many social work assistants help elderly adults learn life skills to live independently, counsel juvenile delinquents in order to help them avoid crime and gain an education or help homeless families get the resources they need to be off the streets at night. Much of the work will also typically be administrative, and most assistants will work directly with a social worker as well.

      Public Health Educator

      Many of the most common health problems around the world are preventable. Something as simple as getting a flu vaccine can make a difference in your overall health, but it can also help to stop an epidemic. Public health educators will teach different groups about the measures they can take to protect themselves and their communities.

      In tropical areas, public health educators may teach homeowners how to eliminate the standing water that attracts mosquitoes with West Nile Virus. In cities, public health educators might visit schools to teach the next generation about the importance of washing their hands thoroughly or teaching teenagers about using contraception effectively to stop the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases.

      Substance Abuse Counselor

      Someone who works as a substance abuse counselor will help individuals or groups to deal with their addictions. You might lead a group of recovering alcoholics and help them to conquer their cravings, or you might have individual sessions with a woman who wants to address her food addiction. This kind of work can be challenging, but it is also incredibly rewarding and satisfying for the right individual.

      Child Welfare Worker

      If you enjoy working with children and want to help them to live a better life, then consider working as a child welfare worker. This job usually involves being a part of child protective services, and it will typically include tasks like recruiting foster parents for children, investigating living conditions or counseling children and teenagers to ensure that they are happy in their current situation.

      Nursing Home Administrator

      Many students who hold a degree in health and human services decide to work in the field of gerontology in either a nursing home or an assisted living facility. Your education in this field will help you to deal directly with elderly patients, give them counseling, teach them how to live independently and help them to make themselves heard to nursing home staff and even to their families.

      In order to pursue any of these rewarding and satisfying careers, you will first need to earn a health & human services degree. Health & human services degrees can be pursue over the Internet thanks to the many available courses offered through accredited online colleges, so consider enrolling today.
