About

The skills you need to thrive as a counselor aren't just learned in a classroom - they're built through experience. As a student in our Counseling program from Central Michigan University, you'll practice working with real people, with real needs, all while you self-reflect and learn more about the profession.

Overview

Overcoming dependence on drugs and alcohol. Navigating the perils of adolescence. Achieving wellness in the face of mental health challenges.Skilled, caring counselors hold the key to help individuals and families do that. And our counseling program gives you the experience to step into the field the day you graduate.Our students go on to work as counselors in public and private schools; colleges and universities; community-based social service agencies; and private practice.

Many of our students complete counseling degrees while holding down jobs in schools or other institutions. The program is structured so you don't have to choose between an education and your career. We hold classes nights, live online, or asynchronously online. You can attend our Mount Pleasant campus full-time or part-time; and part-time in a hybrid, hyflex or online format throughout Michigan. Each provides extensive hands-on experience. You will work directly with individuals of all ages as part of a mandatory practicum.

  • Gain experience at our Center for Community Counseling and Development, a no-cost mental health center staffed by students in the Counseling program who provide face-to-face and telemental health counseling; or a community-based agency or school.
  • The school counseling concentration will train you to assist K-12 students with their academic, social/emotional, and career development needs. You will become a systems change agent who advocates for equity, access, achievement, and opportunity for all students.
