NC State offers a 60-credit online master’s in clinical mental health counseling that takes three years to complete and includes some minimal on-campus visits during the final year of study. The master’s in education emphasizes concepts in career counseling and development, multicultural counseling, and clinical assessment strategies.
The cohort-based program combines asynchronous and synchronous study, with one 90-minute video conference meeting per week in addition to work completed individually. Students must complete a counseling practicum, including at least 100 hours of supervised clinical experience. Applicants must submit GRE or GMAT scores.
