Welcome to the School of Counseling.
We are located on the edge of campus in our own building, giving easy access to our facilities for our students, and for the clients we serve in our in-house high-tech training facility, The Center for Individual and Family Counseling. We serve approximately 600-800 clients each year and serve as a practicum site for about 100 master’s and doctoral students each year.
The School of Counseling is one of seven schools in the College of Health Professions (CHP) at The University of Akron. We value inter-professional activities, and students have the benefit of taking classes in the College of Health Professions.
The School of Counseling is exclusively a graduate school, with two doctoral programs (Counseling Psychology, Counselor Education and Supervision: Marriage and Family Counseling/Therapy track & Counselor Education track) and four master’s programs (Marriage and Family Counseling/Therapy, School Counseling, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Classroom Guidance). We have a number of accreditations:
We have some innovative and dedicated faculty, committed to helping students pursue their desired program of study in preparation for their chosen profession. Our faculty is also actively engaged in research and service activities, and some hold offices at the state and national level in their professional organizations.
