The hybrid or fully online master’s program for leading with confidence that you can earn between one year and 18 months. 

The Master of Human Services with an organizational leadership concentration explores leadership as a critical skill in cultivating healthy, productive, and inclusive organizational culture in the 21st century. Due to rapid and constant change in our society, we need leaders who understand the application of theory and the use of data to evaluate one’s own leadership skills and in the human services arena. You will be able to demonstrate expertise in leadership, organizational change, building organizational culture, increasing employee engagement, data analysis, and relationship building to influence social change.

  • Students develop leadership and team-building skills needed for implementing and coordinating organizational activities and managing change.
  • Students gain the analytical skills to understand, and how to structure, data in order to generate the best possible decisions from clients/consumers/participants, organizational stakeholders, or senior leadership.
  • Students will enhance their ability to integrate organizational history/communication and management techniques to lead in a constantly changing environment.

Our organizational leadership program offers the opportunity for students to access their courses in a variety of ways; we call this hybrid delivery which may be a combination of face-to-face, synchronous, and asynchronous virtual or online coursework.

There are good jobs to be had.

Now is the right time to pursue your Master of Science in Human Services with a concentration in organizational leadership.
