About

The program is designed to train students to become professional counselors and render services to individuals, groups, and families experiencing normal adjustment difficulties of a personal,or career nature in settings such as community counseling centers, mental health clinics, human service agencies, drug and alcohol treatment facilities, abuse shelters, and private practice.

Overview

The program is designed for fall admission and is "fast-track" in that most of the courses are offered in a once-per-week, 8-week session. This allows full-time students beginning in the fall to finish in two years (and part-time students beginning in the fall to finish in about four years). A very small number of non-clinical classes may be offered online, but it's possible none will be.
