About Us:
Southern Nazarene University’s Graduate Programs in Counseling has been training professional counselors for three decades. The SNU GPC program is designed to build thoughtful, informed, caring Christian persons who are contributing professionals to the field of counseling psychology. It is our goal that every student who completes a graduate counseling program acquires the skills and perspectives requisite to effectiveness in the conduct of both their professional and personal lives. We also regard as essential the student's knowledge of and appreciation for the contributions of orthodox Christianity and the Wesleyan/Armenian tradition to understanding human nature, human behavior, and factors affecting behavior change. The counseling degree programs foster in graduate students the formulation of a personal interpretation of human behavior that is compatible with a Christian concept of personality and is supported by the experimental data of sound scientific psychology. The focus of the graduate counseling programs, therefore, is on producing qualified, credible professionals who can bring the added dimension of a Christian perspective that guides their professional endeavors.
