“I basically looked at every single counseling program in the state. I saw that UT Tyler had a good counseling program that was nationally accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs. At UT Tyler, I am taught by full professors with years of field experience. I enjoy hearing their stories that are true to life as they actually happened, as opposed to just learning from a textbook.”
