5 GRADUATE STUDIES IN COUNSELING Graduate Studies in Counseling Handbook 1 SCOPE AND PURPOSE In keeping with the stated philosophy of Our Lady of Holy Cross College, the Graduate Programs seek to provide opportunities for intellectual, psychological, and spiritual growth to foster individual's contributions within a pluralistic society. The Catholic heritage of the college and the Christian understanding of service are integral to the philosophy of the Graduate Programs. The Graduate Programs are specifically designed to enhance the student s knowledge, skills, and attitudes in their chosen academic arenas and to prepare them to accept professional responsibilities. Success in the Graduate Programs is based not only on completing the required course work but also on demonstrating competencies and attitudes appropriate to the profession. Whether they counsel, administer, or teach, graduates of the Graduate Programs of Our Lady of Holy Cross College promote holistic development of each individual and the spirit of justice that brings social equity and global harmony. MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY OF THE GRADUATE PROGRAMS The Graduate Programs in Counseling incorporate the Mission and Philosophy of the College into their own statement of Mission and Philosophy. The various specialties in counseling nurture students into self-developing, competent professionals who can contribute to their communities both personally and professionally. The programs emphasize the whole person s development of spiritual, intellectual, cultural, and material values necessary to live responsibly, respect individuality, seek truth and peace, and foster justice in society. The programs emphasize the delivery of services through a sociocultural, systemic, developmental, wellness perspective. The Graduate Programs implement their philosophy into their mission through measurable objectives for teaching, research, and public service. PROGRAM OBJECTIVES The objectives of the Graduate Program in Counseling include: 1. to recruit, maintain, and matriculate a diverse student body; 2. to foster students' identification as professional counselors; 3. to foster students' development of a sociocultural, systemic, developmental, and wellness perspective of mental health; 4. to promote students development of clinical skills as counselors; 5. to promote students development of skills necessary to consume, conduct, and apply scholarly research in the field of mental health; 6. to monitor students to assess personal wellbeing and to promote personal and professional development;
6 Graduate Studies in Counseling Handbook 2 7. to maintain a counseling and training center providing both an opportunity for the development of students' clinical skills as well as opportunities to engage in public service by providing low cost counseling within the community; 8. to provide a graduate assistantship experience resulting in acquisition of professional experiences and skills; and 9. to maintain national accreditation of the program. STUDENT OUTCOMES OF THE MASTER'S PROGRAMS IN COUNSELING Upon successful completion of the Master's Program in Counseling, graduates should be able to: 1. practice professional counseling skills within the scope of a multicultural and changing society; 2. synthesize theoretical and empirical knowledge in the field of counseling; 3. demonstrate the ability to engage in critical thinking, decision making, and independent judgment; 4. conduct and evaluate research in counseling and its related disciplines for its applicability to counseling theory; 5. practice leadership skills in collaboration with members of the counseling profession; 6. evaluate the impact of counseling theory and practice as it relates to assisting the client in achieving the optimal level of wellness; 7. accept individual responsibility and accountability for personal and professional growth; and 8. have the necessary academic and clinical skills to obtain professional licensure. NATURE OF GRADUATE WORK Course work at the graduate level serves mainly as a guide to independent study. Students are expected to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and attitudes appropriate to their respective professions rather than just to pass courses or simply comply with formal requirements. Graduate students are expected to exceed minimum requirements and assume responsibility in pursuing life-long learning that will best meet their professional needs.

An overload of three (3) semester hours may be approved by the Chair of the Department. GRADE POINT REQUIREMENTS An overall grade-point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale is required for the maintenance of good standing in the graduate program. A passing grade for graduate students in counseling must be no lower than a B. A graduate student who obtains a C or lower in any course is automatically placed on probationary status and must repeat the course in the next semester it is offered, and earn a minimum grade of B in that course, or be dropped from the graduate counseling program.

If a student receives more than two grades of C and has to repeat more than two courses in the program, the student will be dropped from the graduate program in counseling. Graduate students whose semester average in course work is below 3.0 are placed on probationary status and are not allowed to register for more than six (6) semester hours during the following semester. To be removed from probationary status, the graduate student must complete six semester hours with an earned grade of not less than B and a cumulative gradepoint average of 3.0 at the end of those six hours. If the graduate student is on probation for falling below a 3.0 overall GPA and is unable to remedy the deficient overall GPA at the end of six semester hours of the probationary period, the student will be dropped from the graduate program.
11 Graduate Studies in Counseling Handbook 7 Subject to the review of the Graduate Counseling Faculty, students may be dropped from the programs for factors other than grade-point average without having a probationary period. Status is then determined by the Graduate Counseling Faculty. The student may appeal decisions of the Graduate Counseling Faculty by submitting a written appeal to the Provost of the College.
