The limited-residency delivery model blends a core curriculum that combines on-line, in-person, and community-based learning that is aligned with the standards set by CACREP.  The program integrates theoretical study, field work, on-campus residencies, internships and practica, and community engagement to prepare diverse learners for professional licensure.  A distinctive feature of the Counseling graduate programs is the range of alternative modalities offered as concentrations and post-M.A. certificates (e.g., Equine Assisted Mental Health; Expressive Art Therapy; Somatic Psychology; Ecopsychology; Adventure-based Psychotherapy) as well as specializations in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Couple & Family Counseling, Addiction Counseling and School Counseling.

Associate Faculty may be hired as part-time or full-time employees on renewable one or multi-year contracts.  Associate Faculty teach courses, advise students, support student learning, engage in scholarship and professional engagement with the field, and may be assigned to oversee a particular concentration or curricular area.  Associate Faculty with appropriate qualifications may contribute to the development and implementation of a proposed Ed.D. in Counselor Education.
