Feedback on the department’s biggest strengths:

  • “Strong professional identity of professors, recognition of the program nationally, opportunities to be involved in research.”
  • “The professors are caring, supportive and challenging. I really enjoyed building relationships with them and my peers in my cohort.”
  • “The attention the faculty gave to students, as a group and individually. I also felt very welcomed by the faculty. They made me feel comfortable talking with them and I felt like a colleague, rather than just a student. I think the faculty is the greatest strength of the program.”
  • “I like having the emphasis on training us in specific teaching and supervision skills and models. I think that really set us apart in a lot of ways. I also appreciated the trust faculty put into the doc students when working with Master’s students. I was given responsibilities along with guidance and support that made me feel more confident in my teaching and supervision skills. I also liked that the department infused multicultural counseling and discussion into all of the courses and situations. It was what I was looking forward to when coming to the program and I liked that they followed through with this focus.”
