5 THE COUNSELING PROGRAMS at UNCP This student handbook contains general information about the counseling programs at UNC-Pembroke. It also contains information specific to each counseling program. UNCP offers two programs of study in counseling: Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Professional School Counseling. Students are encouraged to also frequently consult the policies of the School of Graduate Studies, the university academic calendars, and the UNCP Academic Catalog. These resources are available online at The information in this handbook is subject to change periodically. Students are advised to consult with their advisors throughout their programs of study for the most up to date information. History of the Counseling Programs at UNCP The Counseling Programs at UNCP have been training and preparing counselors to work in the schools and communities of Southeastern North Carolina since the mid-1990s. The Counseling Programs began as two graduate degree programs: a Master of Arts in School Counseling and a Master of Arts degree in Service Agency Counseling. These programs were among the first of what was then Pembroke State University s graduate degree program offerings. Students began enrolling in the programs in the fall of Originally, both programs were located within the College of Arts & Sciences in the Psychology Department. Over time, the programs were relocated to the School of Education. During the years from , both counseling programs taught their own distinct sets of core counseling courses. In 2008, the faculty in both programs revised the programs to be shared programs with a cohesive counselor education identity, a common core of classes, and a common mission for preparing excellent counselors. In 2009 the Service Agency Counseling Program was phased out and replaced with a 60-credit hour Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program that required additional coursework specifically in mental health counseling issues and required an additional semester of internship for a total of 700 hours of field placement experience upon graduation. During the fall of 2010, the counseling programs began a formal self-study process as the department prepared to pursue accreditation with the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP). The self-study spurred numerous program improvements including, but not limited to, increasing the required number of credit hours for the Professional School Counseling degree from 48 to 60 credit hours and focusing on student learning outcomes for assessment across both curricula. The self-study was submitted to CACREP in December An initial review of the self-study by CACREP was received by the university in March The outcome of the initial review was that the university was eligible to schedule a site visit. An addendum to the self-study was submitted by the university in August 2012 to address concerns about the self-study raised in the CACREP initial review letter. A site visit was scheduled for October The CACREP standards, state licensure standards, the expertise of the faculty, feedback from students, and the unique needs of the region have provided valuable and ongoing sources of program development inspiration. 5
