If you have a special interest in helping others, especially those challenged by their life circumstances, consider a degree program in Wright State’s Department of Human Services. A rehabilitation services major will provide the education needed to work in agencies that serve people who have disabilities, are homeless, are involved in the court system, use assistive technology, or are faced with other challenges. After earning your bachelor’s degree, enhance your knowledge and career options with one of our master’s degree programs in counseling. If you have previously completed an associate degree in sign language interpreting, Wright State’s bachelor’s degree program will help you become more skilled as you work with the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities and with those familiar with deaf culture and interpreting.
