About

The Counselor Education Master of Education (M.Ed) program at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore prepares professional counselors in one of two specializations:  Clinical Mental Health Counseling, or School Counseling.

Overview

All Counselor Education courses are held in the evenings, with one course offered on an intensive weekend format. Clinical experiences (practicum and internship) must be completed during operating hours of the clinic, agency, or school internship site and should be completed in settings on the Eastern Shore.

Key facts:

  • Upon graduation, candidates for the Clinical Mental Health Counseling specialization will have completed all of the academic requirements to sit for their licensure exam in order to become a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC), which allows them to practice under the supervision of a qualified, licensed supervisor in an agency or private practice setting in the state of Maryland.  After completion of required supervised hours after graduation, graduates are eligible to apply to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), which allows them to practice independently in the state of Maryland. If a student desires to practice in a state other than Maryland, then they must inquire about requirements for the state in which they desire to practice.  
  • Upon graduation at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, candidates for the School Counseling Specialization meet all of the requirements to become a Certified School Counselor in the state of Maryland.  Graduates who are interested in practicing in other states will need to meet the requirements of that state for transferring licenses or certifications. See the section on Licensure and Certification below for more details.
