The field of education can take you in and beyond the classroom. Whether you are interested in working with students, administration – or perhaps within curriculum development – there are many avenues that an education degree can take you. Human services, a broad term which encompasses social work, psychology and other related fields, provide a full range of support services. These services may include counseling, nursing, behavioral management, therapy etc. Although most commonly working within non-profit, it is also common to find these types of workers within private or profit settings. In addition, as an increasingly growing sector – non-profit organizations continue to grow and impact our communities on a local and national scale. Non-profits may be advocacy groups, charities, educational institutions, hospitals etc.
