Two semesters of applied research training are required during the first year in the program and two semesters of internship training and supervision in a clinical setting are required during the second year.

Following graduation, some of our students work at the master’s level in mental health or correctional settings, others become licensed professional counselors working in mental health settings, while others pursue further graduate training. Our graduates have demonstrated that they are well prepared to enter the field of mental health counseling or to succeed in further graduate training. Courses in the clinical counseling concentration may or may not meet individual state requirements for the coursework required for licensure at the Master's level.
