The Counseling and Student Affairs (CNSA) program stresses the integration of counseling and developmental theories with interpersonal skill development. It has a generalist orientation, but can be individualized to meet each student’s educational and professional goals. The program provides extensive practical opportunities through practicum and internship experiences as well as relevant course work. It can be completed full-time in two years or part time students have up to five years. The curriculum is designed to help students develop core-helping skills and engage in concentrated study in one of three degree emphases: Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Student Affairs and College Counseling, and School Counseling, each of which has specialized accreditation from the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). These programs also prepare students to apply for state licensing and national certification in professional counseling.
