Program Description

MS in Human and Social Services - Military Families and Culture

Walden University

From combat-related injuries to addiction, members of the armed forces may face a multitude of challenges both on the front lines and when they return home. In this specialization, you’ll deepen your understanding of military culture; explore topics such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and vicarious trauma; and examine how frequent relocations, parent-child separation, and extensive deployments impact military families. You can also gain skills and strategies for helping active and former military personnel and their spouses and children cope effectively with hardships and improve their quality of life.

This specialization can prepare you for careers such as social and community worker for Veteran Affairs or community veteran services, human services program leaders, and non-therapeutic counselors.

Note on Licensure: The MS in Human and Social Services program, including its specializations, is not designed to lead to professional licensure including licensure as a professional therapist, counselor, social worker, or psychologist.
