The Department of Human Services and Early Learning encompasses three programs: Bachelor of Early Childhood Curriculum Studies (with a diploma exit), Bachelor of Applied Human Service Administration, and the Educational Assistant certificate program. These programs prepare students to support the learning of individuals in community, educational and early learning settings, as well as to become managers and leaders in the human service field.

The Department seeks faculty who have a proven commitment to childhood, family and community, diversity, inclusion, social justice and ethical learning practice and leadership. Knowledge and skill in course design and development will provide support in the continuing development of the BAHSA degree.

The ideal candidate will hold a Master’s degree or Doctorate degree in Human Services or a related field (i.e. Education, Human Ecology, Child and Youth Care) and will demonstrate a primary commitment to undergraduate teaching, potential for an ongoing research program and a willingness to engage in service to the program, university and community.
