Human Resource Services

  • Students sitting with children in class  Social services are an integral part of urban life, and social service professions offer outstanding opportunities for students who want to contribute to their communities in important ways.

    Programs in the Human Resource Services career cluster include Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, where students are able to pursue college credit or certification in areas such as criminal justice and law enforcement.

    The Childcare and Early Childhood Education program is ideal for students interested in how children learn from birth to about age 8. And in the Teacher Academy of Maryland, students who are interested in entering the teaching profession can pursue courses and get experiences to prepare them for college (entering with up to 3 credits from Towson University) and later classroom careers.

    Through the state-approved local Law and Leadership program, students can earn college credits: 5 in the legal assistant program at Baltimore City Community College or, through the Community College of Baltimore County, 3 in the paralegal or pre-law programs or 4 in criminal justice.
