The mission of the graduate program in school and clinical mental health counseling is to train master’s-level students to be ethical and caring decision-makers who attend to the varied developmental needs of individuals in K-12 and agency settings. Housed in a comprehensive regional institution steeped in the Catholic tradition, the Marywood counseling program, its faculty and curricular experiences, inspire and transform students to learn, lead and serve in a diverse and changing world. Within this context, the education of the whole person is paramount. The standards-based curriculum is rigorous; faculty expectations are high; and students are challenged to understand and apply the ethical dimensions of personal and professional life and to examine their own attitudes, values and beliefs.
