The Counselor Education program at UNCG adheres to the scientist problem-solver model of training. Consistent with this approach is the program’s goal of graduating students who have knowledge of basic counseling, possess a high level of competency in providing professional services, and have the skills necessary to conduct research. The tenets underlying the program include (a) exposure to a variety of theoretical orientations for counseling, (b) reliance on both the clinical-counseling and vocational-education approaches in designing counseling and programmatic interventions, (c) a commitment to developing the student’s skills as a researcher, and (d) an emphasis on developing the normal developmental issues of the individual as opposed to an approach based on pathology.
There are no undergraduate areas of study offered by this department. Please see the Graduate School Bulletin for graduate programs.
