Program Highlights

Small class sizes

We develop our course schedules in a way that ensures our classrooms support a mutually respectful, collegial environment for student learning. Class sizes generally vary from 15 to 23 students.

Student-Centered Program

School administrators and faculty are committed to a student centered learning environment. We value the contribution of each student in and outside the classroom. We respect students as adult learners and thus seek to nurture and support each student in a way that advances professional growth and development. We offer a series of professional development events, mid-semester stress relief events, and we often boast about our faculty availability and extend to students the opportunity to engage in mentorship for scholarly work with professors. Our students present at national and state conferences and attend LEAD day in Tallahassee, Florida to meet with the legislators.Our part time program has been redesigned to reflect the demands of the working professional.

Advanced Clinical Practice Trauma-Informed Curriculum

New innovative curriculum with observations rooms, video recording, and excellent field placements to support classroom learning.
