The program will serve students who either wish to transfer to a four-year institution, or students who wish to work in local organizations with a behavioral health or human services focus with this A.A.S. degree. Graduates of the program will be exposed to a wide diversity of knowledge, be asked to do practical thinking and problem-solving, cultivate knowledge of skills, values and ethics in the counseling profession, and develop a professional identity as a counselor.
