The mission of the Counseling and Development Program at Winthrop University is to provide an intellectually stimulating and supportive environment for the professional development of clinical mental health and school counselors who are committed to best practice in their roles as clinicians, advocates, and consultants. The faculty designs and delivers academic and clinical experiences to all students in ways that recognize, respect and value the diversity of students’ backgrounds, characteristics, beliefs, and abilities.
The Master of Education degree (M.Ed.) in Counseling and Development provides dynamic curricula for students interested in meeting the educational requirements for licensure as Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) or licensure or certification as a School Counselor. Students choose a concentration in clinical mental health counseling (CMHC) or school counseling (SC); both concentrations are fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The program is offered in a cohort format typically completed in two years; or, in a part-time modified format completed within three years. The structured program includes classroom, laboratory, and field-based education and training.
