Whether your goal is to counsel in a school setting, work in community mental health or private practice, or train and supervise future counselors, IUP’s Counselor Education programs blend academic coursework, personal development, and the practical application
of counseling skills to build the foundation necessary for a successful, rewarding career. Our flexible program design allows master’s students in Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling to attend school full- or part-time, while Counselor Education
and Supervision doctoral students move through their training with a cohort of their peers. All three of our programs are offered in full at both the Indiana campus and at IUP Pittsburgh East in the Pittsburgh/Monroeville area.
