Advance from Front-Line to Leader 

This applied degree teaches our graduates the management skills required to become effective leaders in the human services field. From managing physical resources to trend analysis and research skills, our graduates have the practical knowledge and confidence to work with boards, manage a dynamic staff of practitioners, and still serve the clients and families at the heart of an organization.

The unique challenge of managing a human service organization requires a highly specialized education. To meet the needs of today's busy human service professionals, MacEwan University’s Bachelor of Applied Human Service Administration gives students the opportunity to complete their degree part-time while continuing to work in the human services field.

This applied degree is designed for individuals with a post-secondary diploma (at least 60 credits); an applicant must have at least 60 credits of post-secondary education if they do not have a post-secondary diploma. Post-secondary diplomas well suited for this applied degree include MacEwan University diplomas such as Child and Youth Care, Early Learning and Child Care, Social Work, Hearing Aid Practitioner, Correctional Services, and Police and Investigations.
