Social Work, Psychology, and Counseling

Welcome to the Department of Social Work, Psychology, and Counseling. Our Department is home to two undergraduate programs and two graduate programs. We offer bachelor’s degrees in the disciplines of psychology and social work. Additionally, we offer a Master’s of Counseling Psychology Degree with Concentrations in Clinical Psychology, School Counseling and Rehabilitation Counseling. We also offer a Master’s of Social Work Degree with Concentrations in Community Mental Health and Family and Child Welfare. Collectively, our programs support students in developing the knowledge, skills and competencies to be responsive to the varied health and mental health needs of individuals, couples, families and communities throughout our region, our state and the nation.

Our nationally recognized faculty are committed to challenging our students to succeed in acquiring the core competencies of their respective professions. Through solid curricula, creative use of technology, innovative pedagogy and experiential learning opportunities, faculty and students engage in a reflexive exchange of ideas, perspectives and critical questioning. The Department enjoys longstanding partnerships with local, state-based, and national agencies and organizations which support our ability to extend unique research and training opportunities to our students.

We invite you to review each of our programs. Our Department is preparing students to transform lives. Please join us!

"Visionary leaders are the builders of a new dawn, working with imagination, insight, and boldness. They present a challenge that calls forth the best in people and brings them together around a shared sense of purpose. They work with the power of intentionality and alignment with a higher purpose. Their eyes are on the horizon, not just on the near at hand. They are social innovators and change agents, seeing the big picture and thinking strategically."  -Corrine McLaughlin
