Master of Education/ Educational Specialist â€“ Clinical Mental Health Counseling Offered at the University Center of Greenville
The faculty of the Counselor Education Program is dedicated to educating counselor education professionals as scholar practitioners to function in culturally diverse settings. This training utilizes an integrative practitioner training model emphasizing development, prevention, and enhancement. The program is designed to provide a challenging, yet supportive environment that promotes professional orientation, practice, commitment to inquiry, and self-awareness. This CACREP-accredited program (accredited through 2015 under the 2001 community counseling program specialty standards) is dedicated to preparing counselors who possess the skills and dispositions to work effectively with diverse populations and to engage in data-driven practices. Students may complete the program on a part-time or full-time basis. The full-time program can be completed in two years, including summers. All students must complete the program in six years. Courses are taught late afternoons and evenings, Monday through Thursday, at 3:30 or later. Approximately half of the courses are taught at Clemson University and the other half at the University Center in Greenville during each semester. Full-time students will need to travel back and forth to both locations, and carpooling is encouraged. Clemsonâ€™s program in clinical mental health counseling is designed to help students meet the degree, coursework, and practicum requirements in South Carolina to pursue the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) credential after graduation.
