Human Services (M.S.E.)
Gain insight and add depth to your understanding of human services.
Our master's degree program in human services provides critical insight into the practice of human services and counseling techniques. On its own, the program does not lead to licensure. Many of our students simply wish to gain insight to help in their own fields of practice — such as nursing, the clergy, criminal justice, and other related areas.
We also offer our human services courses at the University of Dayton Center at Capital University in Columbus, and at our new Dublin, Ohio Campus.
Applicants to the human services program should submit the following information in addition to the online application:
- Official academic records of all previously attended colleges or universities must be submitted directly from the colleges or universities to the Office of Graduate Admission Processing. Hand-carried transcripts, official copies marked Issued to Student and unofficial copies are not acceptable.
- Three letters of recommendation from professors or employers.
- A personal statement.
- Results from the GRE or MAT are required for applicants with an undergraduate grade-point average below 2.75 on a 4.0 scale.
- Applicants may wish to submit copies of their Praxis results and current licenses, if available. Including copies of these documents will help to more efficiently process the application.
Additional requirements apply for international students.
Applicants must have attained an undergraduate cumulative grade-point average of 2.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Applicants who have less than a 2.75 cumulative GPA may be admitted if they achieve a raw score of 40 or higher or a scaled score of 396 or higher on the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) or scaled scores of 149 or higher on the verbal ability and 4.0 or higher on the analytical writing sections of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). For tests administrations prior to August 1, 2011, a scaled score of 430 or higher on the analytical ability section is required.
Once an applicant has successfully met the required admission criteria outlined above, there will be a faculty review. Following faculty review of these materials, the applicant may be invited to interview with department faculty.
