Health and Human Services Majors


Our Team A group of some CSU, Chico faculty and students who make up this task force

The Health and Human Services Majors Task Force started as a group of people trying to meet a need. Many students want to work in the healthcare field, to help or work with people, but do not know which majors lead to careers with that focus. Currently, the task force includes these academic programs: biology, communication sciences and disorders, health services administration, kinesiology, nutrition and food sciences, psychology, social work, child development, exercise physiology, journalism and public relations, nursing, public health, and science education.

There are also non-academic programs in the task force: Academic Advising, Graduation Advising, Admissions, Summer Orientation, Choose Chico, Chico Preview Day, Creative Media and Technology, Tehama Group Communications, and Butte County Public Health Department.

Where We Are

Currently, the task force focuses on the education of current Chico State students about the Health and Human Services majors on our campus. This work is primarily focused on the 500+ pre-nursing students but welcomes all students. To accomplish this task, we worked on the following projects:

  • Applied for and received CSU, Chico Student Success Funds
  • Met with potential students at Chico Preview Day
  • Met with all campus advisors to discuss our task force, goals, and to promote the majors (February 27, 2020)
  • Established a social media presence (created Facebook and Instagram accounts)
  • Developed this website
  • Organizing student events to showcase health and human services majors
  • Developed a strategy for information sessions scheduled during Summer Orientation
