Milligan to host prospective counseling students on Nov. 9

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (October 13, 2017) — Students interested in studying counseling can be a Milligan College “Student for a Night” and experience the college’s graduate counseling program on Thursday, Nov. 9, 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,

“Theory and Practice of Counseling,” taught by Dr. Shauna Nefos Webb, Milligan’s assistant professor of counseling and psychology.
Nefos Webb earned her doctorate 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.

“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. Shauna 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.
