Waynesburg University’s Graduate Programs in Counseling have been ranked a top value in Pennsylvania based on data that was provided in part by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Programs (CACREP).
“This recognition represents the dedication of the entire Waynesburg University community including our faculty, staff, students and alumni,” said Dr. Taunya Tinsley, director of Graduate Programs in Counseling and associate professor of counseling. “Our team works together to offer curriculums that are rigorous, challenging and rewarding as we seek to inspire students to a life of leadership and purpose.”
Compiled by Top Counseling Schools (TCS), the ranking primarily examined program completion rates, job placement rates and licensing exam pass rates, as well as accreditation length, research productivity, and tuition and fees.
The ranking cited the University’s accredited programs in addiction counseling and mental health counseling, in addition to single-digit class sizes, National Counselor Exam (NCE) pass rates just under 90 percent, and job placement rates of virtually 100 percent shortly after graduation.
The University’s Addictions Counseling Program is the only CACREP-accredited program in Pennsylvania and one of seven in the United States.
Top Counseling Schools’ purpose is to contribute to the academic mission of higher learning institutions by providing pertinent and objective information that counseling students and professionals find relevant to the field of counseling.
Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
