EdS Counselor Education

Program News

Effective fall semester 2016, the Ed.S. Program in Counselor Education will be closed to student applicants. This decision comes as a result of much consideration and due deliberation concerning low student enrollment. Students currently enrolled in the program will be able to complete their programs of study, but no new students will be admitted.  Please feel free to contact Dr. Beth Durodoye, Chair, Department of Leadership, Technology, and Human Development, for further information.
