About

The Counseling degree offered by the University of Vermont is designed to prepare students with the professional knowledge and skills they need to act as facilitators of change and growth for individuals, groups, and organizations. Counseling Program graduates receive a Master of Science degree and are prepared to work as professional counselors in a wide variety of settings.

Overview

The Counseling degree offered by the University of Vermont faculty are committed to teaching a diverse body of students and are continually seeking ways to attract students with diverse backgrounds who have a wide range of personal, educational, and professional work and volunteer experiences. We are committed to recruiting and training students who represent a broad spectrum in terms of age, race, ethnicity, (dis)ability status, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and cultural background.

The Counseling Program provides students with a foundation of knowledge and skills necessary for helping others.  Students are also challenged and supported to pursue their own personal and professional growth through feedback and self-reflection, as healthy individuals make the most effective professionals. We also believe that our role of counseling in the community is to promote equity and justice.  These core beliefs are emulated throughout our program objectives and curricular experiences.
