Pennsylvania State University Reviews - Bachelor's in Human Services
Penn State is a great school with multiple campuses, all with a different atmosphere. I enjoyed my campus and working with representatives from all campuses. The Human Development and Family Studies program is a great option for those that want to work in social services or social justice fields but don't want to be stuck in one specialty. It is a very broad, flexible degree that gives you many options when deciding which group or organization you would like to work in.
Rehabilitation and Human Services bachelor's degree from Pennsylvania State University is a great gateway degree for individuals who are interested in going to graduate school for counseling, psychology or human development. This degree allows individuals who are not interested in furthering their education in obtaining employment within casework and etc. I am now going to school counseling.
I absolutely loved attending Penn State University. Great education, even more amazing people, and helpful professors. It was a little hard trying to figure out what I wanted to do, and the Career Services Center wasn't really too helpful for me since they didn't know too much about the field that I wanted to go into. However, as for any school, I highly suggest getting to personally know your professors! It's hard because Penn State is so big but it will pay off in the end.
I went to a smaller Penn State branch campus in DuBois, PA. I had an excellent experience there with small-sized classes, individual attention, and all the benefits of the Penn State education system. A major benefit of Penn State DuBois was that it made you feel recognized as an individual and not just a number (which tends to be the opposite case with larger campuses). There were also many clubs and activities to participate in on campus.
Penn State has a great atmosphere. There are a wide variety of academic offerings, and the social culture is great! There is something for everyone!
