College of Health and Human Services
The College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) at Salem State University is home to the university's service-oriented programs. They include the schools of education, nursing and social work, and the departments of criminal justice and occupational therapy. Each program offers its own unique blend of academics and field work that ensures our graduates are well-prepared for the work force or for continued education. I encourage you to visit the program that inspires you.
CHHS also hosts the university's preschool program, a unique benefit for Salem State students with children. A state-certified and nationally-accredited program, it presents our student-parents, a low-cost preschool option, regardless of major. The preschool, however, is not just limited to our students. University faculty and staff, as well as members of the community, are all welcome to apply.
