Department of Counselor Education
Welcome to the Department of Counselor Education
The Counselor Education Program at Stetson University is proudly C.A.C.R.E.P. accredited. We pride ourselves on providing principled and quality counselors with a passion for helping others. Our program focuses on diversity, religious and spiritual, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds in a counseling setting. Our students leave with a solid foundation based on standards within the counseling profession as embodied by the American Counseling Association.
It is critical that our students have a strong foundation of support during their time throughout our program. In the Department of Counselor Education, we integrate this by teaching and providing additional support and encouragement to our students alongside our offices of Student Success, Diversity and Inclusion, and many others. Our students are left with a sense of empowerment and balance to carry them through a successful journey.
