The mission of the Counseling Program at the University of Vermont is to prepare students to work as counseling professionals in culturally and socially diverse school, mental health, and community settings and to act as facilitators of personal and social change.

In the Counseling Program, students have the option to enroll in a 60-credit-hour School Counseling Program, a 60-credit-hour Clinical Mental Health Counseling program or a Dual Program option consisting of 76 credits. Program requirements include 700 hours of practicum and internship in a field setting for the clinical mental health and school counseling programs. Dual students need to complete both the clinical mental health and school counseling internship requirements.

The Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling programs of the UVM Counseling Program are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), the national accrediting body for counselor education programs.

The specific composition of a student's program, designed with the assistance of a faculty advisor, is based on university, college, and program requirements in accordance with licensure and accreditation standards. Learning experiences consist of a balance between theory and supervised practice.

In addition to the general application procedures, a resume and a group interview are required of each qualified applicant. For a more detailed description of the program visit the Graduate Counseling website, or contact:
