Counselor Education

The Counseling Program in the College of Education at Wayne State University is proud to be one of the oldest counseling programs in Michigan. We have many alumni who have graduated to illustrious careers as practitioners, educators, leaders, and writers. We hope you will consider joining us.

Each of the Counselor Education concentrations is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Program (CACREP). We offer the following CACREP accredited master's degree concentrations:

Students who wish to pursue Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling may choose to apply to the combined CMHC/SC program. 

Clinical Mental Health Counseling students may also pursue an Art Therapy specialization, which is designed in accordance with the American Art Therapy Association Standards (in addition to the CACREP accredited CMHC concentration). 

Students who have completed a master's level counseling degree, may choose to pursue our CACREP accredited Ph.D. or Ed.D. in Counselor Education.
