Counseling programs achieve accreditation

Posted: Friday, 01 February 2013

TROY – Two Troy University graduate programs have achieved reaffirmation from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs.

The Master of Science of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Master of Science of School Counseling programs underwent extensive review through a process of self-study and a site visit by a review team.

“Reaffirmation documents that our programs are meeting rigorous national standards,” said Dr. Kathryn Hildebrand, Dean of the College of Education. “It tremendously assists our graduates who seek licensure and national counseling credentials.”

Hildebrand said the CACREP accreditation also helped attract new students to the University’s programs.

“They know the benefits of graduating from a program that is CACREP accredited,” she said.
