Welcome from the Chair and a brief Department
History: Thank you for your interest in the Human
Services Department at California State University, Fullerton. Our
curriculum emerged from a set of courses taught through the
University's Interdisciplinary Center in the early 1970s. Some of
these classes emphasized personal growth within interactive groups.
Other classes also emphasized experiential learning through
fieldwork and internships in community settings.
In the early 1980s, this major was reconstructed as a Program under
the direction of a Board, which sought to better coordinate with
other University departments and disciplines. Offerings were
originally slanted primarily toward a clinical or counseling focus.
Today, while the concentration in Mental Health has remained, other
tracks have been developed which incorporate Social Work, Community
Organization and Planning, Policy Analysis, Administration of Human
Service Agencies, and specific areas such as Gerontology, Substance
Abuse Prevention & Treatment, Persons with Disabilities, and a
track for students preparing for Teacher Education.
While retaining the experiential and introspective dimensions that
initially made the major attractive, there has been increased
emphasis on social and cultural factors affecting human behavior
and community life. There is also greater focus on the structure
and functions of human service agencies, and effective service
delivery to culturally diverse populations. Many of our courses
blend a skill based focus with theoretical foundations and
As the curriculum developed, there evolved a permanent faculty
drawn from diverse disciplines, supplemented by part-time faculty
who are professionally active in the community. It became clear
that Human Services had achieved its own unique vision, curriculum,
In 1995, it was granted departmental status. Currently the
Department has approximately 700+ majors. We have 12 full time
professors, 3 full time Lecturers and about 20 part time lecturers
who specialize in the above mentioned areas. We have established
close working relationships with approximately 180 agencies which
provide internship and fieldwork experience and are a major source
of undergraduate preparation and networking for the Southern
California area. Features of our curriculum have been frequently
presented in professional lectures and publications
Welcome to California State University, Fullerton, and welcome to
the Human Services Department. May your educational experience here
be as rewarding for you as it has been for others!
I am so happy you have chosen our major and hope you will stop by
and see me sometime in EC 454. I have been a faculty member in the
Department for several years and it is my pleasure to serve as
Chair of this wonderful department. Let me know if I can support
you as you strive to reach your educational and professional
