Welcome Current Students

Dear Junior Colleague:

Here, you will find some important resources to support you in navigating your program. There are forms pertaining to course planning, study options, and your practicum. The practicum is integral to your program and requires substantial planning and consideration well in advance. We are fortunate to have many community partnerships within Regional Centres of Education, School Boards, post-secondary institutions, Nova Scotia Health, private practices, and non-profit organizations supporting our practicum students through the experiential component of their program. Details about site availability and contact information will be provided to you in the semester before your practicum begins. Here, you will find more general forms to support your practicum planning and completion process, including our Program Handbook and Practicum Handbook, which contain detailed information about the program and your practicum. We highly recommend you take the time to review these documents thoroughly and keep them handy for reference throughout your program.

If you have any questions about your program, please contact one of the core counselling faculty members with your question. Dr. Tanya Surette is serving as Program Coordinator, and any questions about the program should be directed to her at tanya.surette@acadiau.ca. Kelly Brenton serves as Clinical Coordinator, and any inquiries related to this area should be directed to her at kelly.brenton@acadiau.ca.

We look forward to our time with you as students in the program and our opportunity to support you in achieving your personal and professional goals.

Dr. Janet Dyment

Director, School of Education
