Greeley Program For Professional Counseling
The Greeley campus is UNC’s main campus. We offer all three counseling degree programs in Greeley:
- school counseling
- clinical mental health counseling
- couples, marriage, and family counseling/therapy
We also offer elective coursework in play therapy that can lead to the registered play therapist (RPT) credential.
The Greeley program is designed for students who are looking for a traditional graduate school experience. Classes are primarily offered once a week over the course of the semester. The majority of the courses are scheduled during the day (Monday through Thursday), and evening/weekend classes are the exceptions rather than the norm. Most students are full-time graduate students (taking 9 or more credits a semester); however, part-time enrollment is an option as well.
Faculty members’ offices are primarily located on the Greeley campus, allowing for informal interactions with faculty.
We have an active chapter of the counseling honors society (Chi Sigma Iota) and Leadership Fellows that are very much a presence on campus: hosting professional development opportunities for students, assisting with new student orientation, leading service events, and serving as liaisons with the faculty.
The Greeley campus has a state of the art training center, the Psychological Services Clinic that provides mental health services to UNC students and the community. Counseling students begin their practicum experiences by providing counseling services in the Psychological Services Clinic under close supervision by UNC faculty. The clinic has ample space for individual counseling, group counseling, and couples and family therapy. Two rooms are set up specifically for play therapy sessions. All clinic rooms have a one-way mirror so counseling students can receive live supervision and get immediate feedback on their work with clients.
We also encourage you to learn more about the professions for which our students prepare by visiting the web sites for the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. Finally, we invite you to contact us directly so we can respond to your questions and assist you in your decision making and application process.
