  • What drew you to want to become a counselor? What do you hope to do when you complete your certificate concentrating in either School Counseling or Clinical Mental Health Counseling? 
  • Our program’s mission focuses on multiculturalism, social justice, and advocacy. Read more about our program mission and objectives here. Reflect on the mission of our counseling program and share what stands out to you. How will our mission inform how you will further develop as a counselor in our certificate program? 
  • As you continue on your journey as a counselor in the certificate program, you will be asked to further explore your own personal biases, identify personal strengths and growth areas, and develop your interpersonal skills. Describe an area of interpersonal or intra-personal growth for you and give an example of how it may limit your ability to be an effective counselor. (Note: please think more deeply than challenges like time management or study skills.)
