What makes Union's M.A. program unique? CMHC Program Chair, Dr. Rosalyn Y. Brown Beatty, LPC, NCC had this to say, "We create a connected environment where students have real relationships with faculty, peers and mentors in the counseling field. You will never feel like a student number but have a place where you belong, are encouraged, and create long-lasting professional relationships. Our mission is to support every student as a professional colleague in gaining counseling concepts and skills, but also encourage reflective personal growth as you embark on the journey of wanting to help others."
