Nestled in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania, the Slippery Rock University campus offers a peaceful traditional college setting. Metropolitan Pittsburgh, an easy forty-five minute drive from main campus, affords graduate students access to the numerous events and cultural activities of a major city. The Department of Counseling and Development is housed in two buildings on main campus. The main department office, faculty offices, and classrooms are located in Carruth Rizza Hall. The Counseling and Development Training Facility, a renovated colonial residence, is equipped with state-of-the-art counselor training technology. Four individual/group counseling rooms, and two observation/seminar rooms are connected with an observation system that includes cameras, monitors, and video taping capabilities. Recent technological upgrades include bug-in-the-ear technology used in numerous experiential courses for all program majors.
Course offerings are available at the main Slippery Rock University campus. Classes are offered primarily in the late afternoon and evening hours to accommodate the needs of traditional or non-traditional students who may hold part or full time employment.
