M.A. program in Counseling receives accreditation


JOHNSON CITY – Four academic programs in the area of counseling at East Tennessee State University recently completed a successful accreditation review.

The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) reviewed the M.A. degree program in counseling, which is offered through the Clemmer College of Education, and awarded continued accreditation to the Elementary/Secondary School Counseling and College Counseling/Student Affairs concentrations.  The Clinical Mental Health and the Couples and Family Counseling concentrations were also accredited.

“Our programs prepare men and women to serve as counselors and human service professionals within a variety of educational, health care, and community settings,” said Dr. Janna Scarborough, chair of the Department of Counseling and Human Services.  “The fact that all four of our concentrations have met the rigorous accreditation requirements required by CACREP demonstrates that our program meets the highest standards and that our graduates are well-prepared to address the mental health and wellness needs of those they serve.”

Scarborough said approximately 72 students enroll in the program each year.
