Master of Education in Counseling program could be coming to Chillicothe campus


Depending on student interest, Ohio University hopes to partner with the Patton College of Education on the Athens campus to offer a Master of Education in Counseling program on the University's Chillicothe Campus beginning fall semester 2013.

It will combine clinical mental health and school counseling programs. Plans are to offer courses weekday evenings beginning at 5 p.m. with the possibility of including Saturday classes.

This is a reminder that an information session regarding the program will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15 in the Stevenson Center Learning Commons.

The degree prepares students for occupations that are expected to grow rapidly in the next several years, will have large numbers of job openings, or are new and emerging occupations.

Ohio University program graduates are employed throughout the country and abroad in a variety of positions devoted to service and leadership. Faculty, graduates, and students contribute to their own professional development and the growth of the profession by their leadership in national and state professional counseling organizations.

Further, the Counselor Education Program at Ohio University has a strong reputation and a rich history. It was established in 1948 by George E. Hill, a national leader in Counselor Education. Ohio University's programs are nationally accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling have been designated as Bright Outlook Occupations by O*NET, the government source for occupational information.

More information is available online.

Application forms for graduate programs at Ohio University may be obtained from the Ohio University Graduate College.

For further information, contact Christine Suniti Bhat, program coordinator, at bhatc@ohio.edu or OU-C Associate Dean James McKean at mckean@ohio.edu. The programs will only be offered if there is a minimum number of students.
