Thank you for your interest in the Master of Education degree program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Clemson University. This CACREP-accredited program (accredited through 2015 under the 2001 community counseling program specialty standards) is dedicated to preparing counselors who possess the skills and dispositions to work effectively with diverse populations and to engage in data-driven practices. Students completing the M.Ed. degree program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling can find employment working with children, adults, and/or families in any number of settings, including but not limited to: mental health counseling agencies, behavioral health settings, addiction treatment centers, group homes, residential treatment centers, hospitals, and private practice settings.

About the Program

Mission Statement

Students may complete the program on a part-time or full-time basis. The full-time program can be completed in two years, including one summer. All students must complete the program in six years. Courses are taught late afternoon and evenings, Monday through Thursday, at 3:30 or later. Approximately half of the courses are taught at Clemson University and the other half at the University Center in Greenville during each semester. Full-time students will need to travel back and forth to both locations, and carpooling is encouraged. Most students tend to live in Clemson or Greenville. Typically the program does not offer online classes.

Clemson's program in clinical mental health counseling is designed to help students meet the degree, coursework, and practicum requirements in South Carolina to pursue the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) credential after graduation.
