What was your experience like in an online classroom?
“Often when you look at online education, you think, ‘I don’t know if I can manage this on my own. I feel isolated. I’m not in a regular classroom. I don’t have that face-to-face interaction. I don’t have that person there driving.’ Not true. In this type of environment, you can make it. You can be successful. Everything that you have in a classroom—the teacher, the instruction, the camaraderie, the advice—is available to you on your laptop in an online program at Walden University.”
Walden University’s PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision; MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling; and MS in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). CACREP accreditation is a requirement for licensure in many states. The MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is accredited as a mental health counseling program under the 2001 standards.
The MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and MS in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling programs are designed to prepare graduates to qualify to sit for licensing exams and to meet the academic licensure requirements of many state counseling boards. Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance on licensure issues, however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with all state licensure requirements. Walden makes no representations or guarantees that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain state licensure.
The PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision is not a licensure program and does not prepare an individual to become a licensed counseling professional.
