The program is a 60-credit, 24-month program, consisting of six consecutive semesters. The master’s degree program prepares clinical mental health counselors for a rewarding profession which emphasizes prevention of emotional and mental health concerns, early intervention when problems are identified, and client empowerment.

Dr. Stephanie Hall is founding department chair and program director. Hall has extensive experience in counselor education and program accreditation. She has been a site visitor for the Council of Accreditation for Counseling and Related Educational Programs for 12 years and previously chaired a counselor education department with a large graduate program in New Jersey.

“This program will have an interdisciplinary focus. Our counseling students will be training alongside students enrolled in the E&H physician’s assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy and nursing programs,” says Dr. Hall. “We believe that this experience will be invaluable to students and will contribute to a more holistic view of care for the clients that they serve.”
