The heart of any counselor education program is not the curriculum, but its people. The Counseling Programs at James Madison University are privileged to have active, talented, and dedicated students who have lots of heart. They help make this a vibrant, thriving, and diverse learning community that is constantly changing, growing and evolving. We offer you here both pictures and words to give you a sampling of our students and the energy that they bring to their training. Pictures listed below are for the School Counseling Program.
"I went to JMU for undergraduate and I was already in the area and loved JMU. I enjoyed the feel of the interview process. "
"I really liked the interview process and the amount of sincerity I received from the professors during that time, and the process following up to the program. "
"I loved the emphasis on the value of the experience and growing the counselor as a whole. When I visited JMU it felt like home-the people were so kind and I could tell the staff genuinely cared about the students. "
"I like the location/campus, intimate cohort size, relationships with faculty, development of self through the program (not just techniques and interventions) "
"I like the small class sizes, close relationships with professors, no role playing, self-awareness aspect, and the integrated mindfulness aspect."
