Pros

Good teachers, Good career preparation, Hands-on training

Cons

Very rigorous studying to be a counselor; often felt pushed to my limits.

My program was unique in that half of our classes were counseling and the other half were dance/movement therapy. The instructors were excellent. Felt prepared to enter into the field after graduation due to extensive internship experience.
