"The Human Services major requires three, 120 hour internships as an undergraduate. This major and internships have allowed me to obtain work experience, leaderships skills, and cultural sensitivity awareness. Through very specific classes such as Child Abuse, Proposal Writing, Theories and Techniques of Counseling, Intimate Partner Violence, and Case Management, I have been highly prepared for my counseling Masters Program, where as some of my other classmates that majored in other areas are struggling. I completed my first internship with Fullerton Colleges Educational Partnerships and Outreach office and I continued with the program for my second internship, and was hired on until the end of the school year. At this placement, I have been able to network with both high school and community college counselors and compare the responsibilities they hold at each level. When visiting local high schools, I was able to relate to many of the junior and senior students who were struggling about their decisions on higher education. I was the student advocate for Magnolia High School and many of the students I worked with were going to be first generation college students. Many were discouraged about attending college because of the lack of support or knowledge about higher education in their home life. It has been rewarding knowing I have been able to help them push past their fears and make the best decision for themselves whether it is applying to a university, community college, or exploring Career Education programs. My final internship was within the Health and Human Development Department at CSUF as a group facilitator for the Character and Conflict course. My role was to facilitate weekly groups on topics such as: Death and Dying, Loneliness, Love and Relationships, and Self-identity by utilizing different therapy techniques to help the group members process. I would oversee conflict between group members and help them handle it in a healthy manner. Prior to this internship, I was enrolled in this course (a requirement for the degree) as a student (group member) and it helped me grow in a very unique way that other college classes would normally not provide. I had already had been to therapy, but for some of my peers, they were able to share experiences, emotions, and trauma in a safe place to be processed and addressed before going into the helping field."

"CSUF provided a diverse on-campus culture that broadened my networks, connections, and understanding with others. In addition, the Human Services Degree prepared me to learn and apply acquired skills that are currently useful in my Master's of Social Work program. The professors and staff are extremely helpful as they always do their best to meet the needs of all students. Attending CSUF was an overall great experience, especially because of the on-campus organizations and unity one creates by being part of something bigger."

"California State University, Fullerton is a great commuting based college. Most of the students are from local cities and the population is highly diverse. Moreover, many students are transferred from different community colleges, and they are older than typical college students; however, the age difference was beneficial for me. Older students taught me the proper work ethic and the right attitude to approach studying. From my years in college, what I really enjoyed was my major, Human Services. The program prepares students to be a professional to assist people who are in a need of help. The beautify of this major, however, is that it heals deep scars of students first so that they can help people with a healthy state of mind. By the time I graduated from this program, I had a clear understanding of my identity and a clear direction of my career. I did not expect much from this major in the first place, in fact I did not know what exactly Human Services was, but as of now, I have no regret in taking this route. I am actually thankful for it."
