Military Families and Culture - PhD in Human and Social Services


Return to: PhD in Human and Social Services  

Members of the armed forces face a variety of challenges, both during their service and after they have fulfilled their duties. In this specialization, students will explore topics such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and vicarious trauma and learn about the emotional impact of parent-child separation, frequent family relocations, extensive deployments, and other issues experienced by military families. Students can gain the knowledge and insight needed to address the unique needs of military personnel, veterans, and their loved ones as they deal with the challenges inherent in military life.

With this specialization, graduates are prepared for careers such as social and community worker for Veterans Affairs or community veteran services, human services program leader, and nontherapeutic counselor.*

 

*Note: Career options may require additional experience, training, or other factors beyond the successful completion of this degree program.
