It is a delight to represent Amridge University and the School of Human Services in extending to you a warm and sincere welcome. Those of you seeking a Human Services degree are, by nature, caring, compassionate individuals whose academic goals are motivated by your desire to be competent people helpers. It is a pleasure to be associated with you and to travel with you on your educational journey.
Jerry L. Martin, PhD, LPC
Dean of the School of Human Services
In keeping with the Christian heritage of Amridge University, the purpose of the School of Human Services is to prepare students for careers and professions that are dedicated to providing support and services for the well-being of individuals, family, the church, and society in the spirit of Christian services. This purpose will be accomplished by providing students with an interdisciplinary learning and serving experience with core courses and focused knowledge and skills in a major which may include, but will not be limited to family therapy and human communications.
Additionally, the University has a commitment to public service. Customized, on-demand needs may be met through continuing education efforts offered by the Amridge University School of Continuing Education. These training sessions are typically designed for life-long learners not pursuing academic degrees.
