The UNT Counseling Program promotes human development through education, research, and service that advance the profession of, and scholarship in, counseling.
Through education, the Program prepares highly competent counseling professionals – including counseling associates, entry and advanced level counselors, counselor educators, counselor supervisors, counseling researchers, and counseling administrators – for work in schools, communities, colleges, business, and industry. Through research, the Program creates, applies, and disseminates innovative knowledge, especially in the area of counseling for holistic wellness with at-risk and diverse populations. Through service, the Program provides humanitarian assistance to academic, professional, and public communities, including volunteer counseling services to the public.
The UNT Counseling Program seeks local, state, regional, national, and international prominence as a collaborative and transformative community engaged in exemplary research, education, and service that benefit the profession of counseling, the public it serves, and humanity at large.
