The counseling program currently offers three tracks: Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Rehabilitation Counseling, and School Counseling. Each counseling track has a unique curriculum complete with multiple field experiences designed to best prepare students for work with their intended population. For students who already have a Master of Science degree in Counseling and who wish to obtain State Licensure in school counseling, a second master’s option is available.
Most importantly, all counseling programs are fully accredited and aligned with the Licensed Professional Counselor requirements for the state of North Carolina. The School counseling program is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and aligned with the competencies set forth by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI). Both the School Counseling program and the Community Counseling program are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The Rehabilitation Counseling program is accredited with the standards set forth by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE). These accreditations indicate program alignment with national training standards for professional counselors in each of their respective areas.
