Hollis, Joseph W.
Preparation programs in counseling have undergone many changes during the profession's significant growth over the past 25 years. To help educators, students, employers, and administrators of programs stay abreast of program changes, details of counseling programs across the United States are provided in this text. It is part of a longitudinal study in which a snapshot is taken every three years of counselor preparation programs. For this study, 629 administrative units were identified and are listed, along with specifics on each program. Of this group, 522 responded to requests for detailed information about the faculty, the administrative unit, and programs offered. Listed for each program are majors, degree granted, number of enrollees, number of graduates yearly, admission requirements, graduation requirements, clinical experience required in clock hours, and placement settings of graduates in the first year after completion of the program. Statistical treatment was performed on the 522 administrative units so as to provide comparisons with prior data and to ease the task of comparing individual programs. Programs are separated by specialties and a chapter is devoted at the master's and at the doctoral level for each specialty. Includes a subject index and a faculty index.(RJM)
