Our students benefit from an education that is grounded in theory and best practices. They graduate to become advocates for change who are able to recognize and address individual and systemic issues of inequity and injustice.  As professional counselors, our graduates are educated in the Humanics philosophy to serve individuals in clinical mental health, school, and rehabilitation counseling settings.
