GRADUATE STUDIES IN COUNSELING
Exit Survey Results

GSC Students complete an Exit Survey during their last semester before they graduate from the program. The purpose of the survey is to collect student perception and feedback data on the academic program (admission, program, faculty advising, etc.), various student services (e.g., library, technology, etc.), and overall counselor preparation. The following points reflect Exit Survey Results for the 2013-14 academic year:

  • Students make use of the computer accounts and resources, but not the Computer Lab in the Education Department.
  • Students make more use of the electronic resources and references of the Carson-Newman Library than its books and other print media.
  • Students highly rate the admissions process for its speed in processing of applications, timely communication, and financial aid knowledge and assistance.
  • Students found that graduate classes are offered at convenient times and in environments conducive to learning.
  • Students give strong marks to GSC faculty for their subject knowledge, availability to answer questions, modeling effective teaching strategies and providing appropriate information in course syllabi.
  • Students rate GSC faculty very highly for their advising skills, comfort level in meetings, and knowledge of courses and registration process.
  • Students report high levels of confidence in their knowledge and skills acquired from CNU training to:
    • plan interventions for clients.
    • design, plan, implement, and evaluate comprehensive school counseling programs.
    • use educational research to improve counseling services and programs.
    • manage classroom of students for guidance lessons.
    • work effectively with diverse populations.
    • integrate technology into counseling programs and services.

IMPLICATIONS: As GSC students complete their counselor training and prepare to transition into the profession, they report high levels of satisfaction with the quality of preparation they received at Carson-Newman. They also reflect high levels of confidence in their abilities to meet the demands and expectations of the counseling profession.
