    Holly,

    I have worked with two PhD’s from UNT; both were run of the mill at best. This doesn’t mean the UNT (formerly North Texas State University) doesn’t incorporate quality programs (e.g., perhaps the College of Public Affairs and Community Service, CORE accredited (offering the degree per your inquiry), produces better results in its graduates). However, in my personal experience with the 2-graduates I’ve both known and worked with … as regards UNT PhD program graduates in education (NCATE accredited) … I WASN’T impressed whatsoever! In my daily observation, both were clowns in relationship to their professional competencies. (Of course their job performance might not have been indicative of their particular degree levels and/or the school (UNT) that awarded them)). Bottom-line, I would consider that UNT is considered in Texas, as merely an average academic university at the very best. Any Toulouse Graduate School degree from UNT will be no more revered than any other lower- to possibly medium (a stretch)-tier Texas university.

    On a side note: one of my best friends (David Yaege – top 10 punters in the nation) was a punter for the UNT (NTSU) football team: regrettably he did A LOT of punting. It was a necessity for a not so good football team…

    Not from personal experience but I think the school is well respected and I have known a couple of people who graduated from there and were top notch.

    Is this program totally DL?

    A professor in my graduate program was a previous Counselor Educator at UNT before she relocated to New Hampshire. We have worked very close with one another, and as a result I have had a chance to meet, work with, and present with quite a few counseling grad students from UNT at conferences. They have all been great, and I have a lot of respect for the counseling program simply from meeting them. I do not know anything about the other professors, but I do know that UNT has some very well known counselor faculty, especially for specializing in Play Therapy.

    I do not know much about the specialization in Rehabilitation Counseling program though. However, there is a good break down here that mentions that it allows you for licensure not only as a Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC), but also as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

    However, one thing that you might want to think about is reciprocity. Rehabilitation Counseling is a career field that only exists in a few places, and many states now require a 60-credit graduate degree in counseling to work as a LPC/LMHC... whereas this program you are interested in is only 48 credits (good enough for TX licensure, though). This means that if you were to move to another state with a 60-credit requirement, or if TX were to up their requirement (like other states have recently), you would need to take extra education after your degree.

    *edit: I just realized that the Counseling and Rehabilitation Counseling programs are in different schools. College of Education vs. College of Public Affairs and Community Service. This could mean that my comment about the Counseling faculty means nothing to your issue. I apologize.

    Don't rely on this part completely. I am google searching, and it seems as though CRC jobs are more widespread than I had thought.
