About the Position:
This particular faculty search is for the position of Assistant Professor of Counselor Education with a specialization in the area of mental health counseling. The faculty contract can be issued as early as August 1, 2017. Depending on qualifications, the candidate may be considered for the rank of Associate Professor.
About the Counseling Program:
Since 1989, PTS has offered a Master’s degree in counseling to help prepare students for their professional and/or ministerial vocation as licensed counselors. Currently, PTS offers the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) and the Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (MACMHC). With the MACMHC degree program in particular, PTS prepares students for application in various states to become licensed professional counselors. Besides the counseling-specific courses, the degree completion in counseling programs would require earning graduate credits in select core courses in the areas of Bible, history and theology. Students in the MACMHC degree program are thus trained to become proficient in the area of clinical mental health counseling, as well as being theologically formed and informed concerning various religious/spiritual issues related to clinical mental health counseling.
Timeline & Procedures:
The second phase of review is expected to be completed on or before April 1 of 2019. The Dean’s Office will then extend official invitations to the final candidates to visit the campus for interview. Along with the interview, candidates will be asked to present a public lecture. The scheduling of the candidate’s visit will be processed by the Dean’s Office (Mrs. Glenda Mason, Executive Assistant to Dean & Vice-President for Academics).
