Upon acceptance into the counselor education program, each incoming student is assigned a faculty advisor. Advisor assignments are made based on students’ identified academic and career interests. We encourage students to meet with their advisor to discuss academic planning and progress, practicum opportunities, professional development goals, and academic adjustment. Advisors also serve as a primary point of contact with the broader program and department, and can connect students with necessary resources for assistantships, research opportunities, and professional resources. The advisor, the DGS, and the DGS Administrative Assistant monitor student progress toward degree completion.
“I was ready to be back in school and learning, after taking 4 years off in between my undergrad and master’s. I came in with the expectation to be a sponge and take in everything. It’s been so exciting and exhilarating to learn more about the field of psychology and counseling.”
