The Department of Counseling and Human Services offers curriculum leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees. We offer a Bachelor's of Science degree in Human Services as well as house two minor offerings: Human Development and Learning and Family Studies. We offer a Master's of Arts degree in Counseling with four possible concentrations: Clinical Mental Health, Elementary/Secondary School Counseling, Counseling in Higher Education settings, and Couples and Family Therapy. Additionally, we offer the Ed. S. in Counselor Leadership concentration of the Educational Leadership major in collaboration with the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis. We also house ETSU's Service Learning and America Reads programs. Please note the Department of Human Development and Learning formerly housed these programs.
The Department of Counseling and Human Services of East Tennessee State University prepares competent, ethical, self-reflective, and caring counseling and human services professionals committed to improving the human condition through supportive wellness, counseling, and educational services. In addition, we seek improvement in accessibility, accountability, and coordination of services for all. Each of our degree and service programs provides students with the skills, knowledge and awareness to succeed in their chosen field. See our Mission, Purpose, and Goals statements.
Specific opportunities and curricular/extra curricular requirements are listed under the respective programs. Each of our programs incorporates clinical or service opportunities, such as practicums, internships, or other field placements congruent with program standards and the professional goals of students.
This is an exciting time for us. We continue to have new initiatives as well as to review current offerings to assure we are offering quality programs and services to our students, the Clemmer College of Education, ETSU, and our community. We hope you find what you are looking for on our site. Please contact us for more information!
