Department of Education & Counseling


Thank you for visiting Villanova University’s Department of Education & Counseling.  We offer programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as professional development courses.  Our programs combine theory with practical experience to prepare teachers, counselors and administrators in school and community settings to help improve the quality of the lives of others. 

The Department of Education and Counseling is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE); our membership provides a plethora of information on college teaching, educational policy, and educational research, all important resources for our students and faculty.

In addition, The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP), has granted accreditation to both the School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health programs in Villanova's Department of Education and Counseling.
