Dr. Anthony Hutchinson is an Associate Professor of Human Services and the current Department Chair of Health and Human Services at Tyndale. He is a licensed Psycho-Social Clinician (Registered Social Worker), as well as a Social and Clinical Epidemiologist. In addition, he is also a Consulting Clinical Director to Region of Peel Children’s Aid and an Ontario Superior and Court of Justice-certified psycho-social-cultural assessment and treatment expert witness. Tyndale students benefit from his wealth of field knowledge and engaging lectures that prepare them for their future careers.
Tyndale’s Bachelor of Arts in Human Services is available in two tracks – Social Service Work and Early Childhood Education, and can also be taken with a Psychology minor. The program is offered in partnership with Seneca College, so students graduate with both a degree and a diploma in only four years of full-time study. When I asked Dr. Hutchinson, what else is special and unique about this program, he said: “It’s dynamic and practical, and prepares students to be Christ-centered people in the market place.”
Students in the Human Services program learn how to apply theoretical knowledge to help clients work through solutions to personal challenges. Courses offered include: Sociology, Social Work, Developmental Psychology, Marriage and the Family, and Research Methods.
Dr. Hutchinson says his favourite thing about teaching at Tyndale is “watching and participating in the growth and education of spiritual, professional, and academic students. I am at Tyndale to be used as God sees fit for service, mentorship, and education.”
Even if you aren’t planning on majoring in Human Services, I recommend you take one of Dr. Hutchinson’s, or any of the Human Services professor’s classes. You will not be disappointed.
