Human Services

Human Services students work closely with individuals of all ages in the field. Most internship sites and potential employers will perform background checks through the NH Department of Safety as well as police and potential FBI checks. A student’s driving record will also be examined and considered prior to acceptance of some internship and employment opportunities. The student may be called upon to pay for these background checks

Applicants who have been in difficulty with the law, depending upon the nature of the problem, may not be employable or even eligible for internships. Applicants need to discuss these issues in an interview or meeting, so that future goals will not be compromised.

Sobriety Statement

MCC’s Human Services programs follow the accepted national standard that recommends a minimum of two full years of sobriety for any prospective trainee in the field of alcohol and other drug use services.

Health Considerations

Most internship sites and potential employers will also require physical health examinations, including TB testing. The student may be called upon to pay for these health examinations and/or testing
