Wayne State's master's counseling program has been ranked third in the state.
Wayne State was ranked third in Nebraska. The ranking was published on the organization's website in October.
This ranking was created using the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) to acquire lists of the accredited counseling degrees available in each state. The top programs in Nebraska were ranked based on program completion rate, job placement rate, licensing exam pass rate, accreditation length, research productivity, and tuition and fees.
"This ranking as a top value counseling program is a testament to the quality and affordability of a Wildcat education and our dedication to students' success," said WSC President Marysz Rames. "At Wayne State, all of the ingredients necessary for an outstanding educational experience are in place: the right size, strong teaching, plenty of support, and opportunities for involvement and interaction."
The master's degree program in counseling at Wayne State offers concentrations in three areas: Clinical Mental Health Counseling, School Counseling, and Student Affairs & College Counseling. The department's counseling program is accredited by both CACREP and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
