Agnes Scott College invites applications for a full-time, open-rank position for its new Master of Arts program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Launching in August 2022, the program centers an intersectional approach to the practice of counseling, with a distinct focus on race, gender, and sexuality, while preparing graduates for licensure as LPCs. The faculty director will administer the program, with responsibility for developing practica sites in the metro-Atlanta area, hiring and supervising additional faculty as the program grows, conducting program assessment and leading the program through the MPCAC accreditation process.

Successful candidates will be licensed or license-eligible as an LPC (or related credentials, e.g., NCC, ACS), and have a doctorate in counseling psychology, counseling education, clinical psychology or a related field (ABD with completion by July 2022 will be considered). Successful candidates will also have experience in program leadership and experience in the counseling field (i.e., counseling experience, clinical supervision, teaching, and/or research in counseling), with a background in how race, gender, sexuality, and other identities inform counseling. Experience working with diverse populations and active involvement with professional societies are preferred qualifications.
