Dr. Robert Mapes, chair of SAGU's Counseling and Psychology department, said of the honor, "We are pleased to get this recognition; our faculty members have helped us develop a high quality program that prepares students to be among the best in their field. The success of our program is demonstrated by the quality of our graduates and the great contributions they are making in churches and in the professional market place."
SAGU offers an online master’s degree in Human Services Counseling, Non-Clinical. This degree provides counseling knowledge and skills to individuals and ministry professionals who desire practical graduate level training for effective intervention and care giving in human service agencies and institutions as well as various church related settings.
SAGU offers a second master's degree in Clinical Counseling Psychology. This degree prepares professional counselors whose psychological understanding of human persons and practice of counseling are essentially informed, shaped and given dimension by a biblically-based view of humankind.
The ranking was chosen by evaluating public data about SAGU, including student-faculty ratio, percentage of faculty holding terminal degrees in their field, admissions and retention rates, estimated cost, and counseling-specific accreditation. They were weighed so that potential students could make informed decisions about where to invest in their education. SAGU's accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges also was a key factor of this honor.
