The Director, Assistant Director and faculty of the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program are committed to keeping students well informed of policies, procedures, expectations, and guidelines. The University Graduate Studies Catalog provides students with one part of the available information, and this Handbook is another integral part. The student should keep this handbook available, since it is the first source for seeking answers to questions regarding her or his career at Doane. In addition, after the first year, the student should thoroughly familiarize herself or himself with the Clinical Training Handbook prior to beginning practicum and internship training.
While the program endeavors to give students advance notice of procedures and academic requirements, from time to time it may be necessary to take immediate action to respond to changing circumstances. Accordingly, the Doane University administration reserves the right to make such additions, deletions, and alterations to the policies and procedures set forth in this handbook as well as those in other official program publication without prior notice or publication.
Academic Planning is a key to successfully arranging classes to meet your personal as well as educational goals. You must schedule a time to meet with Jean to plan your schedule for the upcoming year. Courses, days and instructors are listed as planned at the time of publication. All course offerings are based on student interest and availability of faculty and space. Doane University Master of Arts in Counseling program reserves the right to change, add or drop course offerings, at any time without advance notice.
