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 an integral component of your program and one that requires substantial planning and consideration well in advance. We are fortunate to have a number of community collaborators, within Regional Centres of Education, School Boards, post-secondary institutions, Nova Scotia Health, and agencies supporting our practicum students through the experiential component of your program. Details about site availability and contact information will be provided to you in the semester prior to the commencement of your practicum. Here you will find more general forms to support your practicum planning and completion process, including our Program Handbook and Practicum Handbook that 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 inquiries related to the program should be directed to her at tanya.surette@acadiau.ca. Kelly Brenton is serving as Clinical Coordinator and any inquires 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
