“I applied to William & Mary because of the strong sense of community I felt when I attended Prospective Students Day. The passion that the professors and students showed for counseling was inspiring and I knew I would be among peers who felt just as strongly as I did about the importance of mental health.”
Olivia Cruz M.Ed. ’19, Clinical Mental Health Counseling
“The strength of the William & Mary program lies in the priority the faculty have in furthering students' academic and career goals. While there are opportunities to work with faculty on research projects at William & Mary, the faculty also encourage students to pursue their own research interests. Through the support of my faculty, I have had the opportunity to attend an Academic Leadership Academy, take electives in my career areas and work in the area of advancement through a graduate assistantship and an independent seminar. Being able to customize our program to match our own passions makes this program unique and makes the hard work worthwhile.”
Angela Bartee, Ed.D. ’19, Higher Education Administration

“The New Horizons Family Counseling Center is an on-campus clinic where many family counseling students do their internship. It offers invaluable experience that is well respected in the field. The clinical skills attained leads to more employment opportunities and you receive valuable supervision from a committed team. This internship alone will set you apart upon graduation as there are less than a handful of colleges that allow for this type of family clinical counseling experience.”
