Milligan to host prospective counseling students on July 12
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (June 27, 2017) — 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 12, 5:30-7:30 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 a counseling class, “Counseling for Grief and Loss,” taught by Dr. Shauna Nefos Webb, Milligan’s assistant professor of counseling and psychology.
Nefos Webb earned her Ph.D. from the University of Georgia and is a nationally-certified counselor. She is passionate about diversity competence, social justice advocacy, qualitative research methodology and the use of creative arts in counseling practice. In addition, Nefos Webb believes it is essential for counselors to develop an understanding of grief as they prepare to work with a variety of people who often seek counseling for some kind of loss or grief.
“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 Nefos Webb, while also meeting other current students in the program.”
The Master of Science in Counseling (M.S.C.) program offers concentrations in clinical mental health counseling and school counseling. In addition, a certificate of graduate study in counseling ministry is available, 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.
