MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

The Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook estimates that job opportunities for professional counselors and psychologists will grow faster than average for most careers during the next several years. This is good news for our graduates in terms of their career outlook. Yet this projection is also a reflection of the incredible need for healing that exists in humanity. We have been privileged to train well-equipped professionals who can be agents of God’s restorative grace in people’s lives. Our graduates provide assistance to people across the spectrum of life’s challenges: from helping people cope better with daily hassles to contending with traumas and matters of life and death. Our aim is to cultivate graduates who ethically serve in such critical roles with exemplary competence and faithfulness to biblical principles.

We are committed to offering training, which exemplifies the high standards of professional accreditation in counseling and psychology and to fully prepare our graduates to embrace their respective professional or paraprofessional identities.

Whether you are just visiting our website, currently enrolled in our programs or otherwise engaging our academic community, we hope you will experience the dynamic and exciting scholarly journey that has been our calling.

William L. Hathaway, Ph.D.
Dean & Professor

One of the strengths of the School of Psychology & Counseling lies in our distinguished faculty and talented staff. Our faculty is made up of professional clinicians, researchers and educators who are dedicated to excellence in their own lives and in the lives of the students they teach. Faculty members, often partnering with students, make national and international presentations, participate in conferences, and contribute to hundreds of peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters and other scholarly works. But our professors don’t just stand in front of a classroom — they stand alongside their students as clinical supervisors and mentors who are invested in the overall academic, professional and personal development of those they teach.
