Milligan to host prospective counseling students on July 13

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (June 14, 2016) — Students interested in studying counseling can be a Milligan College “Student for a Night” and experience the college’s graduate counseling program on Wednesday, July 13, from 5-8 p.m. Students will meet in Hardin Hall, room 102.

Prospective students will have the opportunity to connect with current students, tour the counseling center and sit in on counseling classes taught by Milligan’s counseling faculty.

Students will be able to sit in on a class about using the creative and expressive arts in counseling, taught by Dr. Shauna Nefos Webb, Milligan’s assistant professor of counseling and psychology. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Georgia and is a nationally certified counselor. Nefos Webb is passionate about diversity competence and social justice advocacy, qualitative research methodology and the use of creative arts in counseling practice.

“Our ‘Student for a Night’ events are the perfect opportunities for anyone to experience first-hand what it’s like to be a graduate student at Milligan,” said Jennifer Duran, admissions recruiter for healthcare programs. “Students will be able to interact with and experience the quality of a Milligan master teacher, like Dr. Webb, also while meeting other current students in the program.”

The Master of Science in Counseling (M.S.C.) program offers concentrations in school counseling and clinical mental health counseling. In addition, through a cooperative agreement with Emmanuel Christian Seminary, Milligan offers a certificate of graduate study in counseling ministry which introduces students to basic knowledge about both secular and Christian perspectives on counseling and how these may be applied in a church-based setting.
