Leadership in Human Service Administration (MA)
Designed to prepare students for leadership positions in human service agencies, organizations, and institutions, Bradley’s graduate program in human service administration provides a contemporary approach to administration that emphasizes leadership over management and places a particular focus on the process of organizational change.
In the program, students learn to analyze organizational problems from multiple perspectives and to develop, motivate, and empower teams. Courses are designed to give students knowledge frameworks from which to operate, to encourage habits of reflection and analysis, and to develop the skills and attitudes that will enable them to be outstanding leaders. A required, supervised 150-hour field experience provides additional opportunities to consider issues from a variety of perspectives.
