About

The School and Mental Health Counseling program of University of Pennsylvania is designed for working professionals embarking on careers as school and/or mental health counselors.

Overview

Key facts:

  • The School and Mental Health Counseling program of University of Pennsylvania is organized around two tracks: Mental Health Counseling Licensure (LPC), and School Counseling Certification and Mental Health Counseling Licensure (LPC). 
  • Using an executive-learning format, students earn their degree while maintaining their full-time employment by attending two years of monthly weekend classes and one week of intense study each of the two summers. After graduating from the program, students will be prepared for such careers as school counselors, college and career counselors, or mental health counseling professionals who work in schools, colleges, community agencies, or hospital settings. Specific preparation is dependent, in part, on the nature of the internships completed during the program.  The SMHC program is built on the faculty's contention that school and mental health counseling need to be better integrated in order to best serve children, youth, and their families, particularly those who present complex needs in both school and community settings.
