J. Terrell (Dean)
The College of Education and Human Services encompasses disciplines related to serving and working with individuals, couples, families, groups, and communities. Prospective students desire vocations where they can work with people in various ways, serving the Kingdom by serving others. Disciplines of the college include the graduate departments of counseling and education, as well as the undergraduate departments of education, family and human services, kinesiology, nursing, and psychology.
The programs of the Department of Graduate Counseling are designed to prepare professionals for counseling and guidance in public and private elementary and secondary schools, community agencies, private agencies, hospitals, private practice, and ministry settings. Programs are offered in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, and School Counseling. A post-master's Graduate Certificate Program in Play Therapy is also offered. The Department of Graduate prepares men and women to become licensed therapy professionals by equipping them with the knowledge, attitudes, and skills that promote Christ-likeness and clinical expertise.
John Brown University's Department of Graduate Teacher Education offers master's degrees for those who desire to become licensed teachers and those who are already licensed teachers. Programs are offered in Curriculum & Instruction, Secondary Education and School Counseling (through the Department of Graduate Counseling).
