The CACREP-accredited Counselor Education program at UW-Whitewater provides graduate-level training that prepares students to provide counseling in a variety of settings. The primary purpose of the program is to help students become effective professional counselors. The program is designed to help students achieve competencies required by regulatory bodies such as the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) and the Wisconsin Department of Instruction, employing agencies, and professional organizations.
Students choose an emphasis in clinical mental health counseling, higher education, or school counseling:
In each emphasis, students develop knowledge and skills in both the science and the art of counseling. The curriculum encompasses three types of learning: academic, experiential, and personal development. Experiential learning includes clinical classes, a one-semester supervised practicum in the Winther Counseling Lab on campus, and a two-semester supervised internship in the field.
