You can gain the knowledge and insight needed to address the unique needs of military personnel, veterans, and their loved ones as they deal with the challenges inherent in military life.

This specialization can prepare you for careers such as social and community worker for Veterans Affairs or community veteran services, human services program leader, and nontherapeutic counselor.*
