The Counselor Education Program prepares counselors to work in mental health, school, and career counseling settings who promote social justice and responsibility, serve as leaders in a diverse and global community, and respond to the complexity of human needs across the lifespan.
There are three degree programs within the Counselor Education Program: career counseling (on campus & fully online), mental health counseling and school counseling. All programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs or CACREP -- and have been approved by IRCEP (the International Registry of Counselor Education Programs).

- The Mental Health Program consists of 60 hours of course work. Our program prepares students to work in non-profit, private, and other mental health settings. The curriculum prepares students for application as Licensed Professional Counselors in NC.
