At the George Washington University’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD), faculty, staff, and students alike believe that education is the greatest contributor to the public good. One of many examples of how a GSEHD degree contributes — the Department of Counseling and Human Development.
GSEHD’s Department of Counseling and Human Development are guided by a commitment to client dignity and welfare, a respect for human rights, individualized mentoring, and preparing knowledgeable professionals to work in a wide array of environments and populations. Students are able to select from a variety of unique CACREP accredited programs (Doctorate in Counseling, Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling, Master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling with Licensure Eligibility, and Master’s in School Counseling) that meet the standards set by the profession. Students even have the opportunity to receive hands-on experience in the field by treating community members at the George Washington University’s Community Counseling Service Center.
With more than a 22% expected increase in clinical mental health jobs (U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics), the career outlook for counseling students is outstanding. Additionally GSEHD’s Rehabilitation Counseling program has a 6 months post-graduate employment rate of 100% and was recently ranked by US News & World Report as one of the top 3 Rehabilitation Programs in the US.
