The Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) has awarded accreditation to the GSE’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling master’s degree programs. The accreditation extends through March 31, 2024.
“This is wonderful news for our school,” said Dean Marvin Lynn. “We are proud of this department and all the efforts of our faculty and administration who continually uphold the highest standards of equity-based research, teaching, and practice. I am particularly thankful for Tina Anctil, who led this effort.”
These programs join the GSE’s School Counseling program and the Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling program, which is jointly accredited as a Clinical Mental Health Program. The Rehabilitation Counseling is also ranked 18th in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
The GSE’s Counselor Education programs are some of the most sought-after programs in the school. Many GSE Counselor Education graduates go on to successful careers in private practice, community mental health and hospital settings, government agencies, veterans services, and in higher education.
