What will I learn?
The Behavioral Health program (BEH) is a degree option for those who are interested in human behavior, especially in clinical or health-related settings. During the program, students will study behavioral health concepts related to addiction and substance abuse, counseling, group dynamics, and human development. The Behavioral Health program will also cover current trends, best practices, and up-to-date research findings.
If you wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree after earning your AAS, you can take advantage of a smooth transfer to UCCS for a BA in Human Services or CSU Pueblo for a BAS in Health Science and Administration.
What is a microcredential?
Microcredentials offer fast-track training. They are designed with input from behavioral health professionals and can be completed in a year or less. Learn basic skills in areas such as patient navigator, peer support specialist, behavioral health aide, behavioral health +, or addiction recovery aide. Scholarships and financial aid may be available.
By earning a microcredential in behavioral health, you'll learn foundational skills to begin working in your community and earn college credit to continue your professional training.
