My experience

At Wingate, the chemistry professors do more than simply teach students; they mentor you and invest their time and energy to make your undergraduate experience personal and invaluable. My relationships with my professors allowed me to succeed academically and discover my passion for research. Wingate’s chemistry faculty aid in student learning by always answering questions and encouraging students to think critically. The chemistry research class gives all chemistry students the opportunity to conduct a research project with the guidance of a faculty member. This gives students a glimpse into what being a chemist is really like. In addition to research, my professors supported my educational growth by helping me obtain outside internships and applying to graduate school. Without the chemistry department’s personal attention to each student, I would not be where I am today.”

Human Services Degree Program


Our human services major introduces you to the many rewarding jobs in public outreach. Because our faculty marries psychology and sociology, you develop many interpersonal skills, including communication, leadership and cross-cultural understanding. These skills transfer readily to the workforce for jobs in public relations, rehabilitation or non-profit organizations. You could also pursue graduate studies in counseling, social work, criminology, ministry or psychology.

We want you to be prepared with real-life experience when you enter the job market. That’s why every student majoring in human services participates in a practicum. Your 100-hour practicum is an internship giving you work experience in:

  • Autism support services
  • Community shelters
  • Domestic violence facilities
  • School counseling centers



Human services majors at Wingate earn either a BS or BA degree. Students may also minor in human services. 

Human Services Four Year Plan

The Four Year Academic Plans are standard templates for how a degree can be completed in eight (8) consecutive Fall & Spring semesters.  There is varying flexibility in the exact course sequence depending upon individual student circumstances, major curriculum and course availability.  Students should consult with their Faculty Advisor for course sequencing, degree planning and other considerations.  Students are ultimately responsible for their degree planning.

My experience

Nidia Angeles

"Being a Human Services major at Wingate was one of the best decisions of my life. The courses I took allowed me to gain a bigger understanding about the issues people with different socioeconomic status face, and why it's important to help reduce/eliminate those issues. While at Wingate, I discovered my passion for serving the community through an internship that allowed me to explore human services further. My professors became my mentors and are the reason I learned how much I love doing what I do now. Through my internship I was able to make connections that have helped me get to where I am today. I work for the North Carolina court as a GAL program assistant, serving children who have been abused or neglected and advocating for them in court."
