0

Addiction, aging, anxiety, mental and emotional distresses…these are just some of the concerns where the skills of a good counselor can come into play.  If you like to help people with finding ways they can cope, and this sounds like a career path that would interest you, then look no further than the Human Services Counseling program at CCBC.

HUSC is one of the few programs of its kind in the nation to offer a unique combination of classes available either fully online, face-to-face, or in a blended format, that prepares you for a variety of career options in the related fields of human services, social work, and/or behavioral health counseling.

After completing the program, graduates are prepared to function as human services workers and counselors in a broad range of settings, such as residential and outpatient programs, group homes, and programs for the aging population.  The program offers two A.A.S. degree concentrations (Behavioral Health Counseling and Human Services Generalist) as well as six separate certificates.

College Essay Writing Season is in Full Swing

0

Now that the Fourth of July is behind us, forward-thinking families are beginning to prepare for the coming school year. That means pulling out summer reading lists; encouraging kids to sharpen their math skills; and, for those whose children are rising high school seniors, starting to think about the college essay. It’s definitely not too early.

Here’s why.

Senior year of high school is an exceedingly busy time for students. Clearing time during the fall semester to develop a thoughtfully crafted Common Application Essay—the notorious 650-word personal piece of writing that students hope will wow college admissions officers and secure them a spot at their dream college—suddenly becomes an enormous challenge in the midst of all the other academic, college-related, and social obligations students face during senior year.

When Marine Corps 1st Lt. Cara Novas delivered the student keynote at her commencement ceremony May 19, she could relate to her audience as a military officer who has transformed her career with a University of Maryland University College graduate degree in cybersecurity while working full time.
