Program Information Sessions
Each year, Department of Counseling faculty host information sessions for prospective students. We host two kinds of program information sessions to meet applicants' needs. All sessions will be held virtually via Zoom.
First, Program Information Sessions will be held by the Counseling Program Director and include details about the counseling program of study, strengths, and admissions process. Second, Deep Dive into Counseling Concentrations sessions will be held by the Directors of the Addictions Counseling, School Counseling, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Play Therapy programs and include details about each counseling concentration. Directors will explain the differences between Addictions Counseling, School Counseling, and Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and highlight the benefits of pursuing each concentration.
The current schedule of sessions is listed below. Please be sure to register for each session you would like to attend by clicking on the Zoom link provided.
