There is an annual review of your progress in the program each year at the end of the spring semester.

Issues related to student diversity will be addressed in each of the courses in the Counselor Education Program. This means that differences in individuals and groups will be discussed. It is our understanding that different contexts result in different worldviews. Counselors must always be sensitive to the possible differences in perception and belief that exist outside of their own.

Student Testimonial

Photo of Lilyan MooreI was actually accepted by more than one university for my Master's degree, but I ended up choosing IPFW because of the affordability, on-site practicum, and experienced faculty. Another major selling point was the fact that IPFW's Marriage and Family Therapy program is the only counseling program in the area actively working toward CACREP accreditation.

In my time here, I have been afforded ample opportunities not found at other places. The faculty serve not only as professors, but as mentors to all students. They try to cater the lessons to our interests and encourage us to become involved in activities and professional organizations. I could not ask for more.
