These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.

THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM

Delaware Tech's associate degree program in Human Services provides career education for those interested in working with community service programs, providing individual and group counseling services, and developing human relations skills for working with individuals with diverse backgrounds. Graduates are prepared to gain entry level employment with governmental agencies or private firms as well as to continue their education at the baccalaureate level.

Additionally, students are prepared for study at the graduate level.
