Welcome to Counseling and Human Development
The Counseling and Human Development programs provide high quality academic and clinical preparation through evidence-based curriculum designed to train critical thinkers. Our programs prepare individuals to work with diverse people in a range of settings, including mental health agencies, higher education institutions, private practice, schools (PreK-12), non-profits, hospitals and care facilities, and other public institutions. We are one of the few public university programs in South Dakota that delivers at the main campus in Brookings, at the Rapid City campus, and online. In addition to our programs, we have a number of field specialists across the state who provide another level of teaching and training to the citizens of South Dakota.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our programs, research or service.
